The Mile is certainly my mistress. She beckons me to her. She's beautiful, an enigma, tantalizing and teasing. One day she has a ferocious temper and yet another a calmness. But on most days she's a bit of both. She'll flirt and tease you with her bounties, allowing a little bit here and there but mostly she's selfish and hold tight her prizes. Then there's days like today where she rewards you for your patience.
