Cold front

Man, it would have been nice to stay in bed this morning. Cold front moving in for the weekend, and it just felt like a snuggle-udner-two-quilts kind of morning. Made myself get out for a run, though, and completed the same easy run route that I DNF'd on last week.

Chilly but not windy this morning, so I got away with shorts, a long sleeve shirt, and light gloves. Felt pretty good out there. Oh, except for the part where I had to stop and dry heave like 7 times. That was different - NEVER done that before. Not like I was pushing hard or anything. Oh, and the sideaches - two of them that came and went away. But really, didn't feel too bad.

I usually see very few people out at the times that I run, but saw a bunch of newspaper delivery people (of course, my paper has STILL not been delivered), a couple of walkers, one with a dog, and a kinda creepy person walking along McCarran between King's Row and Keystone (middle of nowhere) wearing dark pants, a dark peacoat, and a dark beret. Glad a car was going by as I passed them, otherwise I might have run right into them.

Many of these have been annotated below in today's Garmin chart...

LMAO I came a across a similar type person on one of AM long runs. It was dark out and here was this dude in all black in the middle of the road. I couldn't see him until he was RIGHT there. Scared the crap outta me. Thankfully he was "friendly" though.

That was quite the interesting chart this morning. Me? I definitely had one of those "turn off the alarm and snuggle back down under the comforter" morning. Cloudy and dark? Didn't work today. Good for you getting out there! :)

alas, the cold forced me to the treadmill this morning. No darkly dressed creepy types, just flex and stare at yourself in the mirror a-hole types...maybe if i had bigger muscles, i'd do that too...
