No Ice Cream Tonight, Just another 10 Mile Run

Unlike last night, I skipped the ice cream and had an orange before tonight's run. Although I didn't run for speed or hit any hills tonight, it was a great run!

Guided by snow on both sides of the country roads I ran tonight, it was relaxing. As I clipped along the dark roads at a comfortable pace, no more than 10 cars passed me.

I just got into a rhythm, listening to Going Rogue: An American Life By Sarah Palin. One thing that stuck out in the hour an a half I was listening to her narrate. Is the fact that when Sarah Palin ran for Mayor of Wasilla, Alaska; she ran on a campaign promise to cut her own salary. After she was elected Mayor she kept that promise and did! That's about as awesome as Mayor Oscar Goodman refusing an invitation to meet with President Obama! Oh, hell yeah!

Now it's time for the ice cream,
