This is probably going to be my last 10K long run before my next race. I set out just as the sun was rising, and since not many people were around, the birds weren’t as flighty as usual (pun intended). So I got pretty close to this night heron, and even closer to several Egytian geese, including the handsome fellow I photographed below. These birds are pretty big, and I didn’t want to get on their wrong side, so I just admired them as I ran by.
This was today’s sunrise. It was pretty stunning, but I should have taken better notice of those clouds. It rained for the last 10 minutes of my run, which was refreshing at first, but as the sidewalks got slippery, pretty dangerous later on.
