I stretched very little before starting my run today.  As a result, and consequently, I wasn't able to run as far as I wanted.  From now on I'm going to stretch out more, even if it's bad for my hammy.

I slapped a high five to the Little Caesar's sign holder.  He's taken the place of Lady Liberty.

I stretched out more today.  As a result, and consequently, I was able to run as far as I wanted.  Which was 5.45 miles.  There were these two crazy looking guys sitting on the tailgate of a pick-up on Pueblo.  They saw me coming.  One of them stood up, hobbled over to the sidewalk like he was pretty crippled, spun his arm around, pointed his fingers at me, cocked them back, then proceeded to mime that he was shooting me with what I can only assume was a harpoon, and reeling me in.  The other crazy guy just laughed and laughed.  Do I really like a blubbery whale?  Yes.  So, five miles later, they were still out there.  This time I spun my arm around, pointed my fingers at him, cocked them back, and proceeded to mime that I was harpooning him and reeling him in.  Who's crazy now?  Huh?  Huh?  That's what I thought!

I didn't wear my Garmin today.  I couldn't find it.  I was going to use the timer on my phone, but I was worried that it would start raining again.  It didn't.  And man it was nice!  It feels good to be running (more) regularly again.  Just as I'm sure it feels good to be regular.  The run was pretty uneventful until right towards the end when the crazy guy saw me again.  This time he just waved at me.  He's crazy.  Well, crazy about waving at me.  Anyway, I waved back and then did the two-handed point.

I decided to look for my Garmin today.  It was next to my dresser where I keep the charger.  So that's good.  Just another ordinary run on an ordinary day.  Nothing special about it.  Nope.  Nothing.  Enjoy this picture.
