    I know some of you (based on your reading choices) are into the fantasy genre... someone just sent me this song, and if dwarves were real, and had a modern band, this totally would be them:

    Well, it's a good thing I work from home, because I'm going to be humming that all day.

    I'd planned on running to the gym today, but I had a hard time getting to sleep last night because my left hamstring was yelling at me until I took a couple of IB, then I slept in because I had stress dreams about taking a test (ARG!!) so I'm thinking the universe might be suggesting a rest day. I'm scheduled to give blood at 1 tomorrow, but there's a 10-11 class at the gym which fingers crossed should give me plenty of time for my blood pressure to go back down. And if I don't make it, I don't make it.

    Diggy diggy hole!

    July goal: 100 miles

    7/2: 6.26 miles
    7/3: 5.51 miles
    7/4: 6.25 miles
    7/7: 9.11 miles
    7/9: 6.23 miles
    7/10: 6.25 miles

    39.61/100 miles completed

    I had a great run today. It was almost the exact same run as yesterday. I ran 6.25 miles. The temperature was 78°F with 79% humidity and dew point of 71° so it was a little warmer but a little less humid than yesterday. The dew point was the same. Because of the heat, I was really expecting a difficult run, but I felt really good throughout the whole run.

    @Lazy_Bones_85 It was in Abilene. It was ok, but not very well organized. There were no finishers medals and only 2 age groups. I think they were 38 and under and 39 and up or something like that. There was a nice shirt, but I probably wouldn't run it again. I don't mind not getting a medal for a 5K, but I think if you run a half marathon you should get a medal for it. And the course was also short. It was only 12.78 miles.

    No wonder they're so tough.

    @bride001 Stay safe. I don't know how close you are to the trajectory of the hurricane. I'm getting my run done today, just in case we get lots of rain Friday.
