Well, I tried something midweek that I haven't done for a long time. I woke up early to get up and run. I figured it was a good way to keep peace in the house.. I get my run in, but don't shirk my child rearing duties. I must admit, apart from it being early, it was a pretty good time. There's so little traffic at that hour, and the temperature was wonderful.
The most interesting thing I saw on my run was a new in box Volvo big truck air filter. I saw the box, and it had that description, but I thought "what are the odds?". Well, in this case, the odds were pretty good. I wasn't expecting a new one though.. maybe a used on in the new box? Don't ask me, it was sitting in the middle of a rarely used parking lot. It was gone by the next day.
Saturday I did my long run of the week. I did an out and back 12 miler. Turns out the local head shop is 6 miles away. Kind of fun, right? I do question my sanity of signing up for a marathon, but oh well.
Nothing much to report about the long run.. probably the most interesting thing I saw was a set of guard rail bolts. I think they were just an extra set, as the guard rail looked properly secured (as in "no bolts missing").
The next day, I feel fine. That's pretty cool, I must admit.
That's all for now. Keep on rockin!
