I’ve been furiously clicking onto every station for the past two hours, and so far I’ve got nothin’. No coverage from channels 5, 6, 7, 8 or 10. No call-in to KPBS or KOGO. Even the normally reliable KUSI, which will dispatch its star reporters to a Del Taco grand opening, is uncharacteristically mum.
Everyone’s athletics coverage is still focused on those dang Winter Olympics. The real news unfolded at approximately 5:05 a.m. PST on the northern edge of the city of San Diego. There, for the entire world to see, I ran for the first time in four very, very long months.
It wasn’t pretty. But it wasn’t painful either.
