Running Update

     Since summer is waning and fall is fast approaching, I've discovered that if I run before 6 a.m. (its even dark then) I need to take a flashlight with me.  I'm looking at a long, early days this week, so 5:30 a.m. runs are going to be the norm. 
    It was so dark when I left the house today that I could still see the stars!  The full moon partly illuminated my path this morning, along with some street lamps, but I used a pen-light for most of my journey. 
    As I neared the end of my route, a deer took off from behind the bushes and I realized I hadn't been paying attention to where I was headed-I almost ended up running into the deer's hideout!
    Running hasn't been easy for me this past week-last Tuesday I bruised my tailbone really bad when I fell while rollerblading (pushing a jogging stroller & watching Amber on her trike = not paying attention to what I was doing).  Apparently you can't run to fast (or far) with a sore coccyx, so I've been having to take it slow.  (Apparently these things also take forever to heal-boo....)
