Didn't feel like running today. Spent most of the time zoned out thinking about a good friend who is in the final hours of his life. I just found out a couple weeks ago that he's fighting cancer and feel terrible for not reaching out to him sooner. Now the end of the battle is near and I missed the opportunity to say how much I loved him as a friend. God is calling home a wonderful saint.

Barely got up this morning just for 7 miles. Had one of those morning neck kinks and feeling unmotivated since losing a dear friend last night. Wishing I could have been there for one more goodbye.

Good day considering the funk I've been in. Feels better to run more in down times, but the hard part is motivation to start. Super hot and humid outside with no break in sight for several days. I think I'm finally getting acclimated because I don't sweat as long after running as I did weeks ago. Just have to roll with it, I'm blessed to be alive and running regardless of the weather.

Too hot out so did the second run on the dreadmill. Used the incline to make it more challenging.

Planned for more, but volunteered most of the day to helping with a fund raiser for church and didn't get up early enough. Measured HR with a monitor this time and averaged 95 for the entire run with most miles ran in the 8s.
