It's just after 6 a.m. I planned to sleep in, but I awoke with Nell. (She's currently at a yoga class.) As I sit here, I'm transferring songs from my CD collection to my computer so I can upload them to my new iPod shuffle. Then it's off to the gym.
I went for a 7 mile run last night with Jason. I rarely run in the evening--especially anything that leaves the comfort of my neighborhood. I'm an early riser and prefer to hit the streets before dawn and watch the sun come up. But I read Dean's recent blog entry about the peacefulness of jogging at night, and I happened to come across an article in my wife's Runners World about night running--so why not?
It was a cloudy night, making it all the more dark. Nature seemed stiller than the morning. Quiet. It was pretty cool. But I need to get a headlamp if I'm going to do more of these. There were several spots where I slowed down considerably for fear of losing my footing.
I also slept great last night.
