Day five...

Sherrel and I continually comment on how good we feel after a run. But we never comment on how good we feel before a run. For most of the year we run before the sun comes up, so we have to deal with the dark. And we have to deal with the weather… nothing to look forward to about the run itself.

Day three...

When a newly married couple wakes up together for the very first time (assuming it is the very first time) there is a certain fear of exposure. Everybody was on their best behavior yesterday.
