Up early to get the run in before church. Same course as most of the runs but my furthest out to date. Saw the armadillo again also saw the Great Blue Heron after a couple weeks of it being missing in action. Nothing special with pace but it get even hillier the further I get from my house. So that there are two miles with 300 ft climbs.

It was nice and cool this morning. A big change from the last two days. Mostly because of the rain yesterday. It was interesting seeing the steam come off the roads. No wildlife sighted.

This week was probably the most hours I've worked in a week since we moved. However, I don't feel like I got the most done... The morning run was fine. Did not see any other people which was a surprise think that is only my second or third time. But I did see two coyotes!

Up early without alarm even with a late night. The morning was cool and the run was fun. The one pond I run by has a family of ducks. Usually they look at me this morning they didn't even bother. Must have gotten used to me. There was a good group out today as well. At least a dozen other runners. Then at the very end of the run I was thinking if the coyotes I saw yesterday had been in the area and scared away the deer because I hadn't seen them in a while and then three deer run by. Pretty funny.
