2.86 miles, in the dark.
I got up early today and headed out equipped with a flashlight and did a short run of 2.86 miles before I had to get ready for cub scout meetings. I had originally planned (and had made the time for) a 4-5 mile run, but once I got out there on those cold, dark, lonely streets, I was a little too freaked out to go very far. So now that it is afternoon and I'm finished with all of my other Friday obligations, I am going to ride the bike for a while. Tomorrow will be a similar story, since we have kids with basketball games starting at 9:30am and going until 5pm. My plan is to get up before everyone else, pop in a DVD and hit the treadmill for an hour or two. I have heard a rumor that there is a group of runners planning to do a 12 miler in the morning that starts up at the top of the "hill" (just outside of town), and will end back near our house. If I find out they're starting early enough that I would have time to finish 12 miles and still have time to shower before we head out for the bball games, I just may have to join them. :)
