I'm really hoping this morning's run was the last run under 40 degrees until fall. Was a brisk recovery run, no clouds, not many runners. Now I don't mind running in my +ASICS tights (I just learned how to tag in my blog, womp), but I would really like to settle into my shorts.
I counted 5 runners down and 11 up. I didn't even see ducks waddling for their morning exercise. I did see a few normies, including previously mentioned thumbs up guy. ( as I write this on the bus, I see a lot more people now)
Today's shout out goes to a short middle aged Asian lady that that has been so constant, she could be part of a math proof. She hustles, I usually see her around the golf course, and she pulls out a wave faster than a champions gunslinger. Props lady!
On the way back, I missed a good chance to grab a sunrise photo. By the time I had some good views, the sun was already unrelentingly bright, I better start bringing my shades. One fun thing about the morning run, is a really long shadow. Yesterday around the path by the Theater by the Lake at about 5:40am, my shadow extended from the Lakefront path, over the grassy field, and over the north bound section of Lake Shore Drive. I felt like a giant!

Excuses you use to skip a run
Enjoy the day and don't forget to get a run in!
