Personal:

Grew up outside Chicago and joined the blog while I lived in Salt Lake City. Now living outside Birmingham. I am married with two daughters. Wife thinks I'm crazy for doing marathons. And yes I am crazy I'm a scientist for a living...

Up to get a run in before making breakfast for the girls and church. Then straight into errands until after 2pm and then chores... Not the funnet of Sundays. Did have a pretty good run.

My circadian clock is a strange thing. Sat/Sun no alarm and I sleep about 7-8 hr each night. Today I have an alarm but still wake up at 4:02 A.M. The run this morning was good. I heard an owl and was trying to figure out where it was when I turn to my left and there is a deer standing there, about 5 ft. It didn't run or anything. Then about another 1 mi down the road saw the armidillio. Not sure if it was the same one as the other day. It was in a different spot. This time it was on my side of the water and walking along the sidewalk. I was in the steet. It stopped and stood up on its hind legs. When I stopped to get a look it scurried back into the bush. Interesting little creatures. The wild life had nothing to do with lack of people this morning. Not sure what it was but I saw the most people I've seen.

Have a great week.

Unlike Monday there was hardly anybody out this morning. I did see the armidillo again. But this time it was becuase he hand't made it across the street. It's a shame. I did manage to see a deer and I forget to mention that there is usually a heron I see as well.

Nothing to special, except that today was a long day. On campus from 6:30 am until 9:30 pm... At least the end was becuase of a dinner with some important people. The run as usual was my out and back from home.

Another LSD Saturday. It is good to be getting these longer runs in. The first part is the same but I do get out of my suburb into the next this way. See a little something different. Becuase of the 6 am start instead of the usual < 5 am start no deer but I did see the heron. This time it flew up to a tree and and a hawk both going out and back. The coolest part was the misty lakes. It was even cool this morning.
