Although it ended up being 11 pm before lights out, I still managed to get up at 5:30 am without issue (yay me!). I did enjoy being outside running when the sun came up. I only made it 2.48 miles (goal was 3) because I ran out of time. Being as this was my first run in about two weeks, there was a lot more walking than I would have liked. It was humid, and I was sweaty and slow. I'm pretty sure the whole thing went something like this --->
I didn't like the weird guy at the park. I tried to convince myself that it is perfectly normal to walk your dog at the park at 6 am... but it's not normal for a grown man to climb the playground equipment while watching me run by... I was glad I had pepper spray and actually ended up running with it in my hand. I think I'll be changing up my route often, and am considering teaching a dog to run with me (that's easier than it sounds - it's difficult to maintain a steady pace with a dog stopping to sniff everything).
Another big change and one that my sister-in-law will be happy about: I ate breakfast. I had one hash-brown and one egg. Yay me!
