Holiday Run Streak, Day #5

Up at 1:30am, had a rough time falling back asleep. Not sure when I actually did, but I woke up at 4am with my alarm, and in the middle of a REM cycle. I set my alarm for another 8 minutes to see if I could shake it, and then willed myself out of bed, made coffee, got all my gear on and headed out.

I'm using the Charity Miles app for this streak (when I remember it) so today's 4.3 was donated to the ASPCA. I'm pretty frustrated that the app doesn't just sync my distance from fitbit or Strava, but that's life. It's for a good cause so I'll do my best to make it part of my habit.

A cold 4.3 today, but felt OK form wise after the first mile. Nearly ran into a buck head first on my way home. When it gets cold, for whatever reason, all manner of wildlife move further into the city, so I tend to see deer, coyotes, and foxes this time of year. Once he stumbled across the highway I cautiously headed on, ever weary that another deer might dart out of the bushes (as one did some years back, and ran head first into the back of my car.)
