Farewell, 6th Street bridge

The sight of the 6th Street bridge in a music video made it unbearable to not do some running. It's the bridge of despair & the bridge of memories.

There was great despair to cross paths with the Jesus Heroine twice on it, a tiny fraction of a half marathon apart. There was being eyeballed with great intensity on it & longing to be in that parallel race just a few hundred feet ahead. These memories will soon recall a much younger & distant age.

In 2015, it's going to be torn down & replaced by a seismically more robust & hideously ugly piece of warped steel. The asphalt where me & Jesus Heroine ran will be no more. The backdrop seen on those days will never be reproducible again. There will be no trace of what was.

So many other men have memories of that bridge, there's a website about it. It's getting more & more common with increasing age, for our past to be erased as structures from our past wear out, become economically unfeasible, & get destroyed.
