Running Meditation

Let me tell you how much I need to go for a run:Last night, I had a nightmare about these guys, woke a 2:30 am to make sure there were no screaming stitch-faced freaks trying to break into my house, woke at 5:30 am to see if it was time to get up, and woke again at 7:08 to discover that I had already pressed the snooze button.  Twice.There is a possibility that I'm not exactly well rested, today....more
