i didn't have time for a long run this morning since i had to take my 16-year-old out to breakfast for her birthday, so i got up at 5:00, dressed quickly and hit the road. i ran pretty hard at first, but then backed off a bit so as not to hit the nausea button today. no sense in that, right? i ran my scotty dog route in a dense fog. at times, when the street lights were far enough apart, the beam from the light on my head looked almost solid, like a wide, white light saber piercing the darkness. kind of freaky! didn't see anyone else out running this morning, though there were several cars at the fitness center on main. i ran the loop, showered and headed out for breakfast.
