Tuesday morning I had planned an eight-mile run but we had guests Monday night and I was up much later than I should if I am going to be able to make these runs part of my schedule. I woke at 5 AM with the same headache I'd had the entire day before. Water, pain reliever, back to bed to rise at six feeling better, but so goddamn tired. Screw it, I am getting rest, went back to sleep for another hour.
But that left me feeling defeated and depressed.
Distance: 8 miles
Avg Pace: 8:10

What Do Runners Think About? Here's The Sad TruthWhere do I start? I think everyone spends all their time thinking about how miserable they are.
It turns out that long-distance runners mostly think about how miserable running is, according to new research. - HuffPo 8/10/2015
Seriously, though. My thoughts on today's run:
- My right calf is a little stiff.
- Hey, look - five deer!
- Thanks for this water stop.
- My city is beautiful.
- God, it feels good to run today.
