I went to Cadence Running. Co. this evening to help host another Ragnar 101 clinic.  They have group runs every Tuesday, so it was nice of them to let us come.  I didn't feel like I was ready to run the full 3 miles that they do.  It was real hot, and I've mostly been doing pool running.  I honestly don't know if that's been helping at all, but it must be doing something.  It's better than nothing I keep telling myself.

I got up earlier than normal, so I was determined to get a real run in today.  I went outside ready to run a mile and a half.  It was a couple of minutes before 7am, but it felt like an oven already.  It was 92 in the shade.  But I should be able to do a mile and a half.  So I turned on my Runkeeper and I got an alert that today is Global 5K Day.  (I capitalized that as if it's a real thing.)  So, anyway, yeah, I had to do at least a 5K.  I slogged my way through it and I'm happy to say that I beat 15,065 people.  (You don't need to know how many people beat me.  Go away now.)

The sun was behind some clouds this morning, so I went running even though it was late.  There was this strange guy out on the trail.  He was staring off into the distance crouched over.  He wasn't moving.  I started to think maybe he died and rigor mortis had set in.  But when I finally got close enough to where he could hear me, he moved.  I'm not sure what he was looking at.  He was staring across the floodway and there's really nothing to look at.  He was real dirty and looked homeless.  I told him good morning and he muttered good morning back to me.  It was strange.

It was hot.  I was slow.  The end.

I realize that it's going to continue to hurt if I only run once a week.  It was 92º out at 7am.  My shoes have just about had it, but they don't even have 500 miles on them.  I guess Father Time also takes its toll on shoes.
