Had to run and errand this morning so I took it literally.  I wore my orange shirt, shorts, and compression socks.  Needless to say, they did not match my shoes.  I knew this would be a lot longer than what I'm used to, but after riding almost 28 miles on a bike yesterday, I thought I was up for the task.  I just paced myself real slow.  I was running along the streets which is something I've gotten out of the habit of doing.  Glen Frey's Take it Easy was appropriately going through my head.  At one point I saw three dead birds and thought, "What the...?"  Then I looked up and saw I was under some electric lines.  When I got to my destination a man told me I was fast.  He said he saw me way down the street.  I wonder how he knew it was me?  I assured him that I was not running fast.  I headed home and it was mostly downhill.  The last mile had a little uphill and was certainly the hardest.  I made it, though.  My Body Glide failed me.

Went running with my Ragnar team this morning.  We went down the canal and back in my old neighborhood.  Everybody quit before the 6 mile mark :(
