Emily didn't want to get on the bus today.  She was still hungry after eating the eggs and potatoes mommy mader her.  I had to use the bathroom real quick right before her bus came and by the time I got out I could see her trying to sneak some pancakes out of the fridge.  I told her there was no time because her bus would be there in two minutes.  That's when she decided she didn't want to go.  I had to prod her out the door.  She didn't fight me, but she started crying.  I had offered to heat up half a pancake and let her eat it while she waited, which I did, but she wouldn't eat it.  So I ate it.  Anyway, she got on the bus and I started my run with half a pancake in my belly.  I usually run on an empty stomach, but it didn't seem to bother me.  This was the first time in forever that I ran with headphones on.  I was listening to the Ben Shapiro Sunday Special from yesterday where he interviewed Dan Krenshaw.  He's the congressman that SNL made fun of for having a pirate patch.  I had my phone in my pocket, but after about three quarters of a mile I took it out because I heard an alert.  Then I saw I was on a different screen, so I was afraid that if I left it in my pocket, I would mess up my settings, so I just carried it in my hand the rest of the way.

My back was real sore this morning when I got up.  I made sure to stretch out real good and roll it.  I felt decent as I ran.  My back didn't bother me, and I noticed my pace was about 13 seconds faster per mile than two days ago on this route.  There were a lot of runners out this morning and they all had one thing in common.  THEY WERE OLD!!  I could see some clouds building up to the west of me.  The more I ran the closer they got.  When I turned back north again I could see a partial rainbow.  If finally started to sprinkle with about 0.15 miles to go.  Good day to be running.

My legs felt heavy this morning.  It was nice out and slightly overcast.  Yesterday when I crossed University I saw this group of 5 women all walking side by side.  So they basically were taking up the entire path.  And the path has got to be 15 feet wide at least.  Today I saw the women again.  Only there were just four of them.  I asked them if they were missing one today and they giggled and said, "Yep."

There was another move this morning.  It was in Maggie's new neighborhood, but a few streets down.  We're supposed to be going out of town for vacation today, so my wife was a little upset that I was going to help.  Well, there was a bunch of stuff to move and not a lot of people showed up.  One guy told me that he's never been at a move for longer than an hour and a half, which is what we were going on.  I told him my wife was going to be mad at me, so he kicked me off the job.  I ran home and I saw Maggie's van parked in her driveway.  Right before I got to my street Maggie drove by me.  I waved and then I texted her to say that the only thing that offends me in this life is when someone I know sees me running while they're driving and they don't honk at me!  :)
