As I mentioned before, the last few days, and the next few weeks, are a very busy time for me. So much so, I can’t really make a whole lot of time for posting stuff on here. I am, however, interested in mentioning a few things. I am very happy that Murray beat Nadal at the US Open. It’s nice to see a Brit in the finals. I know Nadal is ranked #1 in the World, I simply don’t enjoy watching him play. I prefer Federer or Murray. How nice, then, that the final is Federer v. Murray? I win!
This weekend I made time for two runs, one Saturday and one Sunday. I did them at roughly the same time each day (around 4-30pm). I’ll know that a Saturday run at than time is a pain, because the Catholic Church is getting out from the Saturday afternoon/early evening Mass and it’s mad to navigate the traffic. At any rate, I did something I haven’t done in a long time in that I wore a watch and timed the run. My route is 3.2 miles (a 5K), which I plotted out using the odometer in the Ford. Nice. I ran the Run Around The Square in 34:33. I did BOTH of my runs this weekend faster than that… in the SAME time each day! Odd? I thought so. I did 30:30 each day! I cut 4 minutes off of my time from my first race. Nuts. I’m pretty excited about it, though. Now, I just have to add a mile or so to the route.
In completely different news, I am totally obsessed with the sounds of the insects at night. All summer it has been wonderful. Give it some attention tonight. You won’t be disappointed.
