I went to bed early and got up early this morning. My wife was already gone on her walk. I was excited that I had time to go for a run before I had to get kids up. It was dark out and I didn't bring any lights with me. The only light was from random lights throughout the neighborhood and a few stars shining through the scattered clouds. I felt better than yesterday even though I had Chinese food for dinner. It's what Emily wanted for her birthday dinner. I stepped in a puddle that I don't think was there yesterday. At one point I saw some shadowy figures in the Canal that I thought were rocks, but I quickly realized they were ducks. Just north of Main Street I looked into the Floodway and could make out a tent and a shopping cart. I'm pretty sure I also saw a tarp with someone sleeping on it. They had a dog and the dog barked at me.
