To start off the month and Octapolluza, I was hoping to get up this morning and hit the gym for a couple miles. I guess getting up and getting it done this morning was a little too ambitious. Instead, I put in a good 9 hours at work and headed home for a nice run before dinner. The weather couldn't have been more perfect. Sunny, 71 degrees, a cool fall breeze no matter which direction I was heading in, and the sound of leaves crunching under my feet!
