"Engaging in a little suffering — however self-imposed, arbitrary and contrived — before breakfast each morning tends to demand some humility and injects some marked relief into the rest of the day, making things sharper, more inspired, more immediately aware of the powerful presence of being. And that seems really worthwhile." A. Krupicka

945am - overcast, low 70's, post rain. felt muggy but at least there was cloud cover.

i live just a couple of miles from the start of the wasatch 100 and i drove a neighbor buddy up there this morning - then i slept some more when i got back home. thus the late start on todays run. once the weather gets cooler i'll probably be running later in the mornings also.
