I had almost hoped that everyone would back out on the run this morning as I didn't get my usual 7-8 hours of sleep. On top of it, I had done a speed workout the night before, so I knew I needed to take it easy, but Ed had replied to my text message and when my alarm went off at 4:15AM, I decided to get up and get it done. As usual, I was extremely glad I did. The temps were excellent for running, although the humidity continued to be rather high. Or maybe I just sweat a heck of a lot more in these temps, who knows.

Ed and I took off from Richard's house at 5:00AM to run up the mountain. Everyone else was otherwise obligated. We backed off the pace to take it easy and ran up Toll gate Trail and Cold Springs Trail before hitting the North Loop to the Ranger Station. The entire time, I kept checking my surroundings for anything buzzing around. I kept telling myself how highly unlikely it was that I would be stung by a wasp or yellow jacket twice in one week, but I definitely didn't think it out loud...I didn't want to jinx it. After my allergic reaction on Monday, I made sure to make an appointment with an allergy specialist, but that isn't until later this month so in the meantime, I try to be extra careful, but it's not gonna keep me off the trails;-)
