Time I woke: 4:30 am
Journal of activities:
This morning I woke to do my work, but rather than beginning my run from my home, I decided to ride with Carole to her workplace and then run home. I didn’t take into consideration the treacherous terrain. I’m used to running at a park where the trail is flat and I’m not disturbed by moving traffic. When I’m running at the park, I’m also thinking and focusing on the work that I have ahead. Running home from Sonoma brought real challenges. For one, I had to run on a two-lane highway that didn’t have much of a shoulder. Cars were zipping by me at 60 miles per hour. Besides the fast moving traffic, much of the distance was uphill. The scenery was lovely, but I couldn’t appreciate it because there was too much traffic driving by me at close proximity. I worried about drivers who might be looking at their phones, or putting on makeup, or other distractions that took their eyes off the road. I also made a wrong turn that extended my run. In any event, I’m grateful to have had the extra time with my wife and to have made it home safely. In the evening I attended a staff meeting with the professors who teach criminal justice at San Francisco State University. We met at the famed Palace Hotel on Market Street. I had a great time.
