Aw, shucks

I'm not sure if this fits in the definition of compliments, but I'm putting it there anyway.
A friend of mine told me this morning that the thing that gets her out of bed in the morning to jump on her treadmill is the knowledge that, at that particular moment, I will be out exercising too, and that my exercise may include running around a body of water in the dark (and soon to be cold).
While it's a little weird to think that I'm the first person she thinks of in the morning, it's a nice feeling to know that my early morning 'craziness' is an inspiration to others.
It made me all smiley all day.

Saturday morning running high

Did the Saturday morning run around Lake Ginninderra today and knocked over two minutes off the last run time! I am so happy! It's great to make such a big improvement and also to know that the pain I was feeling was justified.
It was an interesting run today also because we had a bit of fog today so for most of the run where we were alongside the lake it was if there was just nothing else but the bit of path we were on. You could see nothing but the 10 meters ahead of you and where the lake should have been was just white.
