1. I would still like to do one of the races at HarborFest this Sunday, but I'm not sure it's going to happen. One of my friends from college is coming to town tonight and staying through sometime Saturday afternoon. I already did my first "long" run of the weekend this morning so I could take tomorrow off, but I probably won't be able get in my second long run until Sunday morning. I suppose I could get up at 4am to run and then go to the swim, but I don't think I'm that crazy (or committed?). Depending on when she leaves on Saturday I may try to run that afternoon, but the weather would also have to cooperate. I'm not heading out to run 13 miles when it's 90 degrees.
2. Last week I got a pair of Asics 2160s to test out. You may remember that I hated the 2150, but then kind of liked it again. I figured the 2160s were worth a try, especially since they are so pretty!
3. This is the time of year that I really start getting excited for fall temperatures, but sad that the days are getting shorter. It was so pleasant when I stepped outside this morning a little before 6, but also just starting to get light. Can't I have both? Early sunrise and temperatures in the 60s? That's how things would be if I were Mother Nature. But since I'm not, I'd pick running in the dark in cooler temperatures. And there is something nice about starting your run in the dark and watching the sun come up!
