Urrgh...

Should've known better. Went out for a short run too soon after lunch today, and felt a little queasy most of the way through it. Granted, lunch was pretty healthy - a tuna sandwich and some banana gingerbread - but it felt like I might see it again there for awhile. Managed to avoid that...

Started out on one of my standard runs, but on a whim, I took a detour through a neighborhood I don't usually get to. Nobody really does, because the whole neighborhood has only two entrances, and one is a dirt path above a runoff washout. Funny how these little pockets are spread around... Anyway, this neighborhood has those theme-named streets, all named after San Francisco streets like Geary, Polk, Van Ness and Telegraph. I exited at the bottom back into my area, where all the streets have "regal" themes - King Henry, Majestic, Windsor. (Planners have had to get more creative with this naming recently - some friends of ours live in a newer section of town where all the streets are named after different kinds of hops (!). They live on Fuggles. OK...)

Nice to run on a humid day again. Wasn't actually raining, but everything felt different, smelled different, looked different... Nice change.



(That spike in the pace line right after I started? Slowing down to cross Keystone. I love the Garmin...)

Wow! I ran 4 miles in almost the exact time you did today! Of course it was fast for me, and all on a nice steady treadmill and no traffic lights to stop at. It was, again, the perfect temp for a run. :)
