Tonight was an easy paced 2.8. I didn't get out to my run until 9pm. The weather wasn't bad tonight with the temp. a mild 42 degrees and clear skies. In fact the sky was so amazing it was like every star was on its own stage shining bright...amazing. It's a good thing I looked down from the sky when I did because I almost ran straight into a parked car on the street! Youch...close one.

Now that I have everyone laughing at my expense, the run was exhilarating and I just wanted to keep running and running and running...like Forest Gump. Such a high when I finished and I can't wait to do my long run on Sunday. I feel so blessed to be able to run everyday, it's so easy to take things for granted. Just when I think I have it bad or I catch myself complaining about things I read or hear about a story that puts things into perspective for me.

Tonight I find myself counting my blessings and I hope you can too! Have a great night and I will update tomorrow morning on my morning workout. - Jason The Running Man

One time awhile ago I was running to cross the street and as I was crossing I saw on the other side a beautiful church and I was admiring it as I ran across. The problem was that when I got to the other side of the road where the church was I was still looking at the carvings in the church and forgot about eh curb up onto the sidewalk and fell face first onto the sidewalk.
