Don't worry, there wasn't a showdown at the O.K. corral, but I did enjoy a midday run. I feel fortunate that my grad student lifestyle permits me to run in the morning (I especially enjoy a.m. runs with a buddy, followed by coffee plus Arizmendi!) AND in the middle of the day. The roads are a bit quieter, except for FedEx and postal trucks. And, more importantly, it's a divider for the day.
Yes, my morning began with rise and shine and analyze data in Excel. Then there was drafting. And the run, under a fake-looking blue sky, boosted my oxygen levels just enough. Seeing the world zip around me does wonders for me, and I know I can shift gears and tackle the tasks ahead!
