Today is Emily's birthday.  She loves birthdays.  Especially her own.  I woke up with a bit of a sore throat.  Yesterday was fast Sunday, which is a tradition (not sure if that's the word I'm searching for) that our church has each first Sunday of the month.  We fast (go without food or water for two meals - 24 hours) as I way to humble ourselves and pray in faith for whatever we feel needs the Lord's blessing.  As a congregation we decided to join in unison to fast for a little girl that will be undergoing heart surgery today.  As I was at church I got a text message from my son that the sewer manhole out in the street was overflowing and spewing sewage out on to the road.  This isn't the first time we've had sewer problems, as there are roots that grow into our pipe.  But I got to thinking that if the manhole is plugged, that means it is downstream of  our house and may not be our fault.  We got home and it wasn't the manhole I thought it was in our cul-de-sac.  It was the next manhole downstream.  So basically our entire neighborhood was having their sewers back up and many of the houses were getting their lower levels flooded with raw sewage.  And the superbowl hadn't even started yet!  Well, we got a tiny bit back up into our laundry room, so we decided to go to our friend's house for dinner while the house aired out.  I've been doing the ketogenic diet again for almost a month now, but I kind of had a cheat day.  We had pazole.  I also had some lemonade that tasted a little too sweet, so I had my wife check to see if it was keto, and it was not.  So I decided since I had already eaten non-keto stuff, I might as well have a bite of a chocolate chunk cookie.  It was good.
Fast forward to this morning.  After getting Emily on the bus I stretched out and started my run.  I was feeling good at first.  But then I started to slow down and I wondered if it was because I didn't stick to my diet yesterday.  Anyway, it was nice out.  We got some light rain yesterday and last night.  I saw the same lady that I saw last week wearing a flourescent pink jacket and walking her dog.  She does a run/walk thing and about 20 yards before I caught up to her she started to run, and we ran the same pace all the way until she turned on Adobe.  I decided to just do two loops today.  Now it's time to get to work and get ready to bring Emily some Taco Bell for lunch.
