A little insomnia led to a great morning run. I woke up at 3 AM and couldn't go back to sleep. So I switched on the coffee maker, scarfed down a Cliff Bar, and headed out at 3:50. 13.25 miles in 1:45.

PM: 2 miles at track practice.

Mr Murphy, Mr Murphy, wake up, class isn't over for another 23 minutes.

Good job, Rob.

Nice run early riser. Hope the insomnia goes away.

Call me when you get a chance.

I love those runs, they are my favorite.

Doug - you could be right. Fortunately, I'm administering the ACT today so I'm pretty much just sitting here while the kids darken ovals.

Rob - I agree, after the first few steps.

Gotta love those days when you're tired but still wake up early for no reason...
