Since I planned to get up at 4:30 this morning to make the 75-mile trip to downtown Houston for the Race for the Pennant 10K at Minute Maid Park, I went to bed at 11:30 last night. My normal is 12:30. I woke up at 2:30 a.m. and could not go back to sleep. At 4:30 a.m., I got out of bed and then changed my mind several times about going down. In the end, I stayed at home for fear of falling asleep at the wheel on I-45. I was really looking forward to the race, but felt it was not worth of risk of driving sleepy. I went back to bed and slept for an hour or so and took a couple naps on the couch during the day. At 5:30 this evening, I ran 5 miles on the roads in town. It was hot, but the humidity was low.
