It was a beautiful morning out.  A tiny bit cold, but perfect for running.  When I started to stretch out, I realized how sore I was.  But I felt good when I was running.  I saw a tent in the bushes.

I started my run at 6:25am.  It was still dark out, and it remained dark the entire time.  I didn't bring a light with me, and there are no lights along the Floodway and Canal paths.  There was just enough light for me to see where I was going.  I was wearing real dark clothes, too, so I must've seemed like a creeper.  But the nice thing was, there weren't very many people out on the path.  I felt real good, and the weather was awesome.

I got up kinda early this morning.  Well, early for me.  I was sitting on the toilet when I heard a cat meowing.  It sounded like it was in distress.  I went out the back door and started following the sound.  It was dark out.  I wondered if it was a bobcat.  Or maybe a cat being eaten by a coyote.  Anyway, I got pretty close and it must've heard me because it stopped.  I don't know why I told that story.  But I was up and my lungs were congested.  I tried to hack up as much as I could before my run.  I went outside and stretched.  I felt pretty flexible.  But when I started to run my legs felt sore.  I just took it nice and slow.  It was cold out, but still shorts and T-shirt weather for me.  I saw a lot of walkers on the trail today all bundled up.  There was a cool looking fog settled in the bottom of the Floodway.
