It was cloudy and a bit rainy for my 5 miler last night, but rain wasn't the only thing in the air. Apparently, there was a fire -- not sure if it was far west in the Everglades or if it was closer to home -- and ash was blowing around during my run. It was weird, because in a strange way it resembled snow, so with temps in the 80s, the juxtaposition was odd.
But whatever the oddity, it was unpleasant to breathe and run in. What also sucked was that I stopped my Garmin at a light, and then forgot to re-start it. Doh! So I have the split for the first 1.3 miles, but then nothing else. I hate it when I do this; probably I should just let the Garmin continue to time while I'm paused at lights, but I hate doing that because it's doesn't actually reflect my pace when I go back and record the splits and the overall time.
