Yesterday I was sore. My body ached in many places, and that was strange. My posture was terrible. I felt myself leaning forward, not standing straight. Leaning forward is good, emotionally, walking down the hall not so much.

Last night would have been a night for running perhaps. Instead I sat and read, because I do not read enough. I listened to the girl play violin, because I have not had the opportunity to do that for a while.

Pavement: wet w/puddles
Temperature: 43°
Climate: light rain
Mood: anxious, but determined

There was a lit Christmas tree on the island in the park. Brisk, rainy run. Light rain and not cold. Very pleasant, actually. Maybe a little over dressed -- I wear a T-shirt over a long sleeve tee to keep my earphone cord under control, even with a jacket, it has an annoying habit of sneaking into my sleeve.
