I couldn't resist this lonely road photo, taken "near Hayes, SD", and uploaded to Panoramio.com by Aigin. I have a feeling that if I were really where I claim to be, it would look an awful lot like this. For days on end.
After taking yesterday off, I felt like I should have been able to leap out of bed and do 10 miles this morning. Except that I hit a humidity. By the end of 7 miles, I was soaked outside and parched inside. Remembering my goal to survive August in order to run the marathon in September, I cut my run short. I don't feel great about that, but on the other hand, 7 miles is nothing to sneeze at.
