Morning Run

I went for a run this morning. There were not many bunnies when I started (it was too early for them, I suppose) but they were massing toward the end. I know they're out there, plotting. Nine total bunnies today...and those are just the ones I saw! Never trust a bunny.

The other thing that was shocking was just how unbelievably HUMID it was out there today. It's 6.00 am, and according to my local weather station, there is a 0 MPH breeze, the humidity is 93% (anymore and it would be raining) and the dewpoint is 70°F. I don't know what dewpoint is, and I'm not sure I have the time or energy to find out, but suffice it to say it was like running in a swamp.

On Another Note
My buddy Eric M. ran in the Wild West Relay. For a fun read (if running through mountains seems fun...or perhaps, if reading about someone else running through mountains is fun), check out his RACE REPORT HERE. GREAT job Eric...FREAK!

Beware, your friend Eric M. isn't human--he can't be...

I've driven the road from Ft. Collins to Steamboat, and even made a 8-day hike up and over the continental divide that is between the two. With that experience in my background I can emphatically say: humans can't run that route.

Your friend says he drew the straw that meant he had to run through Rabbit Ears pass. That pass is brutal. My car struggled to get up it; I can only image what it does to humans.

My hat is off to Eric M. The "M" obviously stands for "manly" and distinguishes him from me, Eric O. which henceforth stands for "only posing"

Actually, I have a sneaking suspicion that my Eric friends are cut froma very similar cloth. They usually find themselves in interesting situations after uttering phrases like, "That sounds like fun" or "Triple-dog-dare? Okay!"
