No Excuses 

I have a couple of different distance "courses" that I run. And of course, I time myself when I run so that I can get an idea of how I'm doing. When I run, I have a couple of very simple rules. First, I only stop my watch when I come to an intersection and I have to stop. If at any point in time I walk for any part of it, then I keep timing.

Lately though, it seems like whenever I cross a major intersection, there are no cars anywhere. All the lights that I come up to always seem to stay green for me, or turn green as soon as I get to them. So now if I'm tired, I either have to walk (which means I screw my time), or I keep running... because I don't stop unless I have to. With that said, I haven't walked at all... but it would be nice to have an excuse to stop. Oh well.
