More to the flats

After a great night's sleep, I felt somewhat rejuvenated today. Yesterday's run was fine, but I didn't feel as fresh as I have in recent weeks. Today was good, and I avoided pushing too far, turning around at the first gate in the flats.

It's fairly warm (45-50), and a little overcast, so I was able to run in just shorts and a long shirt. That was nice. I'm nearing the end of The Historian, who turns out to be Dracula himself. The only questions remaining are who winds up with stakes through their hearts. It's been kind of fun, in a DaVinci Code kind of way.

I don't remember for sure, but I think Pearl S. Buck's The Good Earth is next on my running/reading agenda, while I'll listen to Don Quixoite on the motor trip to Nebraska and back.

The usual assortment of birds were out; I got a better look today at a dead furball curled up under a bush on the way down to the flats (I first spotted it yesterday, but couldn't quite make out if it was dead or sleeping or even what exactly it was), and it appears to be a coal-gray cat. Too bad. Saw a couple running down from the Whispering Ridge neighborhood with their dog. They were just a quarter-mile ahead of me onto the flats, but I turned off for my looping return trip before meeting them on their return.
