          Coffee................. yummy

          I do have to say or ask... is it just me or do a lot of kids (teens) that go these skate parks (skateboard, bike, etc) seem like obnoxious punks???? My first mile pretty much had a group (6) tagging along behind me, stopping, going, laughing and just being teens and then at a stop light, stopping right in front of me and spreading out so I couldn't go ahead and cross without walking into the grass which then they started going themselves. Luckily they picked up the pace and left. 
          I don't know, maybe it's just me. :P

            FreeSoul87, I think that they were simply oblivious to people outside their little group.

              Great job Bruce.

               

              Thanks guys. It's a bit of a relief to end my streak (not that it was super-long or anything). Now I don't HAVE to run everyday. 623 miles in 61 days.

                    SIAR - nice double

                     

                    Kristin - hope the knee is ok

                     

                    B-Plus - great streak, and way to go on not feeling compelled to continue it

                     

                    10 miles in the 'burbs today after work, 45º and light rain meant shorts weather!  35 minutes at HM pace, 6:31 overall.  It was one of those days where even the tempo portion felt effortless and I had to hold back.

                    Passed a girl who was really moving, probably well under 8:00 pace.  I had crossed to the wrong side so as to not startle her, and on a hunch was going to ask "Boston?" but she had earphones in.  Great day to run.
