Close call at mile 6

I could hear the cold north wind blowing this morning when I got up and I didn't think I was going to particularly enjoy today's run. But surprisingly it turned out better than I thought.

Ran an average 8:03 pace and felt pretty good after a couple of miles. The wind was a factor but for once I wasn't overdressed and stayed warm but not too warm. The last five miles was the easiest with the wind at my back.

I was startled by a walker at 6 mile mark. It was pitch dark, very early, and he (she?) wasn't wearing anything reflective. I didn't realize the person was walking toward me on the side of the road until I was upon him. Two feet to the left and I would have taken him out.

You should have taken them out anyway for startling you like that.

How many miles did you run?

It takes all winter to figure out the right mix of layers for the weather and then spring comes.

Every year it's the same thing.
