Total Distance

I considered this a recovery run, although really I was running the same pace I was yesterday.  But it was for a shorter distance, so that counts, right?

At precisely 6:01am I ran by the MWF and there was another weird guy sitting on the bench.  I don't know if it was the same guy as last time.  But I told him good morning.  He replied back with a good morning, but he didn't sound weird.  He sounded normal.  That's so weird.

Funny, I just read his blog and he had a very similar story.

You can't believe everything you hear on the internet.

It's weird that there was a weird guy that sounded normal.

Nice job getting in some running.

Nice job getting out the past few days!

Dale - Exactly! Weird!

Tara - thanks.

BTW, I know both of you have dropped me off your Favorite's List, but no hard feelings.

From DaleG on Sun, Feb 02, 2014 at 01:04:25 from

It was an accident, I swear.

From DaleG on Sun, Feb 02, 2014 at 01:09:16 from

I put you back on my favorites list. Amazing what guilt can do

From Burt on Sun, Feb 02, 2014 at 01:26:39 from

Guilt? I said no hard feelings.

From Tara on Sun, Feb 02, 2014 at 05:41:37 from

And Facebook. We're on a break, remember? Can't have the temptations.

From Burt on Sun, Feb 02, 2014 at 10:27:55 from

Really? I take back the no hard feelings.
