AM: Commute run in. Saw a buck near research park. I have seen deer every day this week along Foothill, either running or driving. 

Mi 2.5 Avg. 9:41 HR 145

PM: Left foot started misbehaving again, after sitting in a talk? Not sure what that is about but I'm going to back off a little.

deer are natural born runners, but their driving skills could use some work. :-)

Or their understanding of cars at all. I almost hit one coming home from work Sunday night...

It was smack talking me and it took all my self control not to hall off and punch it.

In all seriousness if you see the tire tracks in front of the library at Foothill and 2100 E that was me stopping...
