8 out of 10... and a confession

This morning's run was a struggle -- I woke up with stiff, achy knees, and had a hard time getting warmed up. I also struggled with my breathing, and had that weird hyper-sense of smell (dryer sheets, lawn food, chlorine). But I ran to the lookout and back ... so that's something. Even if I definitely wasn't "running happy". 

I have two more runs to go before I "earn" my new watch... but I couldn't resist. I figured it was better to start using it BEFORE going on the cruise, to get used to it. So... well... I cheated a little. I will still get my runs in by Monday (yes, that means running tomorrow and Monday...). I promise.

It's fun to run with a GPS again, so that I can have pictures like this:


No, I don't know what the red and green dots mean. Maybe that I had to stop and wait a long time for a stoplight? Who knows.
