  74F, 94%.  8:28 AP.  I wasn't feeling great yesterday so took the day off.  Fortunately, I think I've fought off whatever it was.  Back to the grind...

73F, 93%.  7:50s, I think.  Running is really a chore right now.  It's just not fun, especially with the hectic traffic around here.  Good news is I probably only have 3 more mornings here.  When I get home, I need to make some kind of build-up schedule and stick to it.  I always do better when I pre-plan everything.

73F, 92%.  8:19 AP.  Going trough the motions.

Might get things wrapped up here, work-wise, by tonight or tomorrow morning, which means I can leave.  Even better is that I will be starting a new job at a bank (headquartered in San Antonio) in a couple weeks.  No more dealing with DoD or contracts, woohoo!  And no more traveling to the armpits of the country for weeks at a time (I hope).

74F, 90%.  8:01 AP.  Just found out last night that I'll be needed here through tonight (until 4am).  Can't wait until I start my 8-5 job....

Finished out August with a couple goose eggs, but I finally slept... 9+ hours.  Instead of running, I played golf with my dad (parents are in SA for a visit).  Definitely the better choice.
