Kim and I did the overpasses this morning.   It’s a great run, but now the sun is directly in our eyes, as opposed to the golf course, where it would have been at our backs.

We have one rule when we run:  We never ask the other one, “Are you okay?”.  We know that the mind-trip would be on.  In other words, I would think…Why?  Don’t I look okay?  What are you saying?

I didn’t like this run today for a few reasons.  The catwalk over Highway 99, was frankly, a bitch.  It felt like I was running through mud to get to the top, then I had to scale it back a BUNCH on the way down.  Kim got ahead of me a bit, and I was fine with it after the second overpass.

The only thing that made me happy was that I lost 3 pounds today.  Other than that, I’m wondering if I will love running.  Ever. 

Oh, I really really like Allison Moorer, my song of the day.  Her voice is amazing.  That’s the bright spot on this run.

A week from Tomorrow:  The Emerald 12K in San Francisco.  My only question is, why?
