Two out of three

Second leg was awesome. Descending into Silicon Valley next to a moonlit lake… Running at 4 am is not nearly as bad an idea as it might seem.

    Back in ’84, when I participated in that Houston to LA relay to celebrate the Olympics, I enjoyed running in the middle of the night. It was the daylight running, east of Phoenix, with the temperature above 100 degrees, that left something to be desired.

    You’re right, early morning running is the time to do it – in general you’re not conscious enough to hate it as much as when you’re wide awake… Or maybe that was just my experience.

    I was up at 4am too—except that I was yelling at Super Shuttle. [[groan]] The end of that story remains to be told. They better pay for the cab I had to call after they bailed on me at the last minute.

    Chris: From my perspective, it was late-night running rather than early-morning. I wasn’t nearly as tired as I expected to be, though. Even for the last leg of the race, at one in the afternoon after I’d been up all night, fatigue didn’t seem to be much of a problem.
    Right now, however, I’m pretty exhausted.
