I got up at 6am, but waited until we got Emily on the bus before I went running. Emily has been sick, too, and today was the first day back at school in forever. I started running, and I didn't feel great. I saw a ton of people out today. Lots of runners, too. Most of them looked older than me, but faster than me. Except that one guy that took his shirt off. I passed him. I saw one lady that was wearing last year's Ragnar McDowell Mountain Trail relay shirt. I told her I have that same shirt. She had to look down at it to remember what she was wearing. Anyway, my pace was 7 seconds faster than my average pace on this loop. Go figure.
