My first mile was a tad faster than what my normal pace has been lately, which made my remaining miles slower than my normal pace.  It seems there are quite a few bloggers coming in for the Phoenix Marathon this March.  I need to lose some weight before then because it's all about image.

Got to bed early last night, so I had no problem getting out of bed at 5am.  I got ready to go and headed out.  My Pandora playlist wasn't great.  I mean, I liked all the songs, but I really want to hear 80's hairbands while I'm running.  Some of the stuff this morning was a little too modern, like Blackened Blue Eyes by the Charlatans.  I kept thinking that it would get better because there are only so many 80's hair band songs without swears.  It finally did on the last song which was If You Don't Like it by Cinderella.

At precisely 5:47am I ran by a bus stop.  The bus stop is next to a Starbucks.  A lady was sitting down.  She had a coffee.  The smell was very strong.  She took a long sip.  I said, "Good morning."  She continued her sip and said, "Good morning."  I was nearly 50 feet away by then.

I considered this a recovery run, although really I was running the same pace I was yesterday.  But it was for a shorter distance, so that counts, right?

At precisely 6:01am I ran by the MWF and there was another weird guy sitting on the bench.  I don't know if it was the same guy as last time.  But I told him good morning.  He replied back with a good morning, but he didn't sound weird.  He sounded normal.  That's so weird.
