Evading 18 miles

After taking an early flight home from DC this morning and more importantly, not quite enough sleep last night and a little Guinness and pizza, I decided that the 18 mile run today would be better tackled tomorrow under the circumstances. If I start early I can also try to avoid some of the heat as it has warmed up back in Chicago. I just finished watching the England game as we were booted out of the World Cup prematurely as the team once again demonstrates an inability to score penalty kicks under pressure. I didn't get to see past the first 5 minutes of overtime either and had to see the result online due to my dumb DVR which, unlike a TiVO, failed to see that the show hadn't finished and just cut it off. Arg. I'm off for my sports massage now at least to get myself ready for the big run tomorrow.
