Today started early again because Sandra and I planned to meet at 5:00 am for a 13-mile run that turned into 16 miles. Long runs on tired legs are good for marathon simulation, and the extra distance made our post-run trip to Smoothie King even more rewarding.
This afternoon, I did laundry, helped clean up the front part of my house, edited a paper, read for class, and went to a statistics study group.
Tonight, Richard made a delightful dinner with some steaks and vegetables we picked up on our Costco adventure on Friday, and we hosted Tim for dinner. After dinner, I caught up with Ariel briefly, read some more, and FaceTimed with Leah. I still have some work to do, so I'm going to cut this short. I regret none of the fun I had this weekend, but I do think my life would be less stressful if I could read faster. If a genie comes out of a lamp and wants to grant me three wishes, someone needs to remind me that my first wish should be to read faster while still absorbing the information.

Time I woke up: 4:24 am (I snoozed my 4:15 alarm to get 9 more minutes of sleep)
