I ate Filiberto's for dinner last night, and I did not sleep well.  But I've missed too many consecutive days of running, so I had to get out.  I ran nice and easy.  It seemed like it took forever.

I've been running the same route over and over.  At least today I saw my friend Rich Porter and he did his patented swing around and ran with me for the last one mile plus.

I started running and I got to Adobe, and all of the sudden my knee started to hurt.  I thought I might have to stop.  But there was a car behind me and I didn't want them to see me stop.  So I kept going.  Then I got to the Floodway and I was about to stop.  But there were two old men about to cross the street and I didn't want them to see me stop.  So I kept going.  After a while my knee stopped hurting.  The coolest part of the run was when to ducks flew over my head.

I wanted a longer run today, but I've stuck just doing my 2.5 miles for the last couple of weeks.  My heart told me I could do it, but would my body?  I was doing my stretch routine when I saw three people running down the street.  It was my neighbors and members of my ward, the Ray's and their 10 year old daughter.  I finished stretching shortly after they were gone and I was able to see that they had turned south down the RWCD path.  I went north up the Floodway path, which merges into the RWCD path right before the 1 mile mark.  I saw some of the regulars that I see when I venture this far north.  I saw this lady that always wears this bright neon yellow tank top.  It reminds me of the 80's.  And I love it.  I saw the guy that runs with his arms down.  I bet he had a stroke.  From now on I'll call him Stroker's Ace.  That's probably offensive.  I also saw the Well's Fargo stagecoach guy.  But I don't think it was him.  Maybe a brother or a son?  The run was nice.  The weather was beautiful.  I felt decent, but I'm glad I turned around when I got to McDowell.  5.7 was just about right.
