Good morning! I was supposed to do a race this morning. Just a fun 7 miler near my home. But I woke up and just wanted to run alone. I wanted solace. I was not feeling a race. So, I didn’t do it. I ran alone, in the quiet hills surrounding Ithaca. It was bliss (except for the part where I sprinted to BK to use the bathroom). The students are back so early morning running is the only way to avoid the bustle of people going to class. Time to start counting down to graduation! 😉
