Just guessing on my distance based off previous entries.  My Runkeeper went crazy and showed I ran 2.2 miles.  The nice thing about it was that it showed my pace in the low 8's.  Ah, maybe some day again.  Anyway, I saw another coyote.  It looked a lot like the last one I saw.  I hate to sound racist, but they all look alike to me.

Today I got up way earlier than normal to go running with a couple of guys on my Ragnar team, Mike and John at 5:45am.  Sounds like a radio show.  I thought it might be cold, so I grabbed a light jacket.  It was lightly sprinkling.  Very lightly.  But it wasn't cold at all.  In fact, it was kind of warm in the long-sleeved Ragnar Trail T-shirt I was wearing.  I also had on my reflective vest and my headlamp as we headed up our favorite hill, Usery Pass.  Since I've barely run in forever, I knew I wouldn't make it to the top.  I decided to turn around at the halfway point.  I could still see John and Mike's red LED lights blinking in the distance when I turned around.  Going down was a lot easier.  I had a 5 minute negative split.  I was surprised at how many other runners and cyclists were out this morning so early and so dark out.  Anyway, I ran down the street a little and turned around so that I could get an even 4 miles in.  I knew if they continued to the top it would be a 7.3 mile round trip for them.  Since it was warm and I was sweaty I decided it would be a nice idea to take my reflective vest and Ragnar Trail T-shirt off, and I would don my jacket when they got back.   After removing said items, I realized that I have recently shaved a V into my chest hair and thought it would be embarrassing for them to see.  So I tried just putting my reflective vest back on.  It was sweaty and gross and it didn't cover any of the V.  So I put my sweaty Ragnar Trail T-shirt back on.  Blech.
