Saturday I put my running clothes on and wore them all day without ever going for a run.  So this morning I put them back (without washing them) and went out and did the same three mile route I did on my last run.  The canal says it's not open for recreational use until March.  I hope that means for fishing.  I saw plenty of people running and riding bikes.  Maybe they have the same philosophy I do.  They have to catch me before they can prosecute me.  Did I just say cute me?  I probably shouldn't have that philosophy since I work for an irrigation district.  Anyway, runners are allowed to wear the same outfit again without washing it.  Right?  So today's run felt a lot better than last week's.  Faster pace, too.  When I was done my clothes smelled like wet dog.  But I think it has less to do with wearing it twice and more to do with the fact that I've had that particular pair of shorts since the beginning of time.

I just realized I ran less than three.  I thought it would be closer.  I took a slightly different route thinking the loop would get me to three.  Then I accidently stopped my GPS in the middle.  I couldn't go back, or I don't know how to go back, and look to see how much I'd gone.  Bummer.  I used to tell my friend that anything less than three was a waste of my time.  So I don't like that number up there.

Anyway, it was late.  Like 10:30pm.  I don't like running anymore when people can see me.  But today at church (I'm writing this entry the day after I ran) someone said they saw me.  Grrr!!  He actually lives right across the street from the park where the magic water fountain is located.  So, there's the canal, on the east side of that is the MWF, then east of that is the park.  The park is a big retention basin where the Latino population likes to play soccer on Sundays.  Did I offend anyone by saying Latino?  Anyway, it's about 20 feet deep.  I ran through it to cut to the MWF/canal.  It was freaking cold down there.  What the heck?  I'm glad my entire run wasn't that cold.
