Early Morning Miles

Most of my runs, except Saturdays for obvious reasons, have been lunchtime runs, usually on the treadmill at work. However, there have been a few early morning, pre-dawn, outdoor miles -- and a few evening ones as well. Today was one of those early morning runs.

The planned 6 miler took an unexpected detour as I had to, uh... well, I had to make an unplanned stop. I didn't have any tissue on me so I had to take a shortcut followed by a detour to get to the nearby Chevron. With the Garmin having a dead battery, I didn't really know how long the detour/shortcut was, so I estimated the rest of the run. Got home and showered, drove to work, and mapped it out, and it's 5.75 miles. The stopwatch on my nifty new iPod says 59:40 for time, which is an average pace of 10:23 - right on par. I don't know how accurate it is, but it's close enough, for today.
