Today is my 23rd wedding anniversary.  I woke up at 6am, went potty, and went back to sleep for an hour.  I finally got out the door by a few minutes past 8am.  It was hot, so I brought a water bottle.  I was surprised that there were so many people out.  About the half mile mark I was approaching this lady that was walking.  I could feel my shorts sliding down some due to the weight of my water bottle. I knew I needed to retie my drawstring, but I couldn't do it while I was that close to her, lest she thinks I'm a creeper.  So I waited another quarter mile 'til I was out of her view and fixed the problem.  I decided to do another mile than my normal runs lately because Monday is the Ragnar Chase the Moon event, and I have to run 6.7 miles under the moon.  I hope I can do it.  I should be able to, but just like last year it's gonna be hot.  I turned around at McKellips Road and headed back.  When I crossed Greenfield I read the Walgreen's sign that says the time and temperature.  It was 8:35am and 95º.  Shortly after crossing Brown Road I was passed by this lady.  I have no idea how long she'd been following me.  She ran ahead and started walking for about 20 seconds.  It wasn't enough for me to catch her.  It's now almost 10am and I finally stopped sweating.

Good thing you brought a bottle of water with you!

Yeah, you really have to commit to getting up early in the summer. That, or just run really really slow.
