I went running after I put Emily on the bus at 8am.  It was overcast out, so it was nice.  When I got to the west side of the Floodway there was a guy running with his dog.  He was probably 20 feet ahead of me and we were running at the exact same pace.  (Which was slow, BTW.)  I noticed in the canal what I thought were bubbles coming up from the bottom.  That will happen sometimes when biological processes occur in the algae at the bottom.  When we got almost to Adobe Rd. the guy and the dog went over by this lady that was walking down the canal.  I guess they knew each other.  That's when I realized it was actually sprinkling, so that was what was causing the bubbles in the canal.  (They weren't really bubbles.  I just thought they were.)  Anyway, the lady thought the guy was sweating on her so she started to freak out.  Then she realized it was raining, too.  It made me laugh out loud.

Very slow run this morning.  As I approached the Floodway, I noticed a big truck parked over on the other side.  I always look to make sure they're not parked in front of the RWCD gate.  I saw the owner by it, too, but didn't think much of it because I figured he was getting in it.  As I ran north on the east side of the Floodway, I saw a man walking his dog on the west side of the Floodway.  He was almost to Brown Road.  When I made my over to the west side of the Floodway at Brown Road I saw another guy that walked up and touched the fence.  I was like, "Where did that guy come from?  And why is he touching the fence?  That's what runners are supposed to do.  Not walkers."  It was then that I realized he was the owner of the truck and he must've ran up the canal.  He waited until I got right next to him and he started running again.  He was pretty slow, but I was slower.  He made it back to his truck, which was half a mile away about 20 to 30 seconds before I did.  Then he waited for me to pass by him again before he got in his truck.  He seemed like a super nice guy.  Maybe he'll be my new best friend.

It was a beautiful morning out.  I've been up since 5am, and after two rounds on the toilet, I finally got out to run at 7am.  There were a lot of people out jogging, walking, walking their dogs.  I didn't feel great.  I had a tiny wheeze for the first half mile, but after a mile, I finally had settled in and felt ok.  See you guys tomorrow.
