Recovery run from Saturday.  Nice and easy 3 miles without a Garmin.  It was a nice run even though it was windy and there were a few sprinkles.  Yet, it was still 62°.  Here's a picture from the turn around point of my Saturday South Mountain extravaganza.  Panorama style!

My wife is the prettiest, sweetest, best everything! I'm sorry I ever said anything to the contrary. I will no longer mention her in a bad light on my blog....

I really need to start getting to bed earlier.  But the lure of Operation Repo and Pranked is just to tempting.

3 miles this morning.  1 mile warm up, 1 mile fast (for me), 1 mile cool down.  I gave the customary high five to Mexican Liberty.  As I was running by the canal I saw a duck.  I thought how cool it would be if the ducks that have been frequenting our front yard were there when I finished my run.  Just as I finished as if on cue, they touched down in my lawn.  I sat down and watched them for a few minutes.  There was some stale bread left over from the last time my kids fed them that I threw to them.

Splits - 8:05, 6:43, 8:40


PM Run

Group run up at Las Sendas.  Las Sendas is kind of a ritzy area.  Very nice houses.  Gated communites.  Desert preservation.  Tonight I saw a couple of cop cars driving around.  I wondered what they were doing.  Then we ran passed a guy walking his little pooch.  Shortly after that I heard a noise in the bushes up by a wall.  I glanced over and saw a large shadow.  I was going to keep running, but I remebered the police cars.  So I stopped and went back.  There were two javelinas.  Up until last year I'd never seen any in the wild.  It was pretty cool, but they are mean.  I hope they didn't eat the little pooch.

Distance - 4.53

Splits - 8:50, 8:53, 8:58, 9:34, 5:18 for 0.53
