I planned on running with Mike like I do ever Saturday morning. I went to bed at 8pm. But I couldn't sleep. And I couldn't sleep. And I couldn't sleep. At 1am I texted Mike to tell him not to come by. I finally fell asleep around 2:15am. I think I was stressed out over a project I'm working on. Anyway, I got up around quarter to 8 and my wife was already home from her walk. But she went back to bed and fell asleep. I wanted her to take me up to the top of Usery Pass. But she just wouldn't wake up. So I wore my running clothes all day. I finally decided to run at 5:51pm. I wanted some good miles but wasn't sure where to run. I figured it was too late to do Usery. I thought I would just run up the Canal to the Main Pumping Plant. As I was running I decided to instead run up to McDowell Road, turn east and run to Higley, then turn back south and run home. I wasn't sure how many miles it would be, but I figured it would be at least the distance of a normal Saturday run. I brought my headlamp with me because it was dark. I didn't put it on until about a mile and a quarter into it. Running along the Canal in between McKellips and McDowell, I saw some creepy guys walking down the path without any lighting. Could they be any creepier? I stepped on a rock somewhere along the path and now my foot is sore. Turning east, you start to head uphill, but I flet decent. I knew from riding my bike along Higley that the first half mile south was also uphill. But it's not steep, so I just kept plugging along. When I got to a mile and a half to go I got a call from my wife. She was worried about me. I told her I was fine. The last half mile was kind of a drag, but I made it.
