Prompt for October 2, 2015

Complete the short story/flash fiction, that has the following first paragraph:

The smooth asphalt of the running path flashed by under her feet with a monotonous rhythm. The path, built just last year, was still smooth and relatively seamless as it wove its way through the river valley, following the lands undulations like a gray snake. It followed the path of least resistance and demonstrated that as it wound through trees like a drunkard in an effort to avoid all obstacles. This was why, after a heavy rain, portions of the path were often flooded as the rain water followed the same path. It was also why Tamara Cameron thought the pool she was approaching was water even though in the dim morning light the deep red of the blood was becoming quite pronounced.

Post a link to the story in the comments.
