another skipped run

Well, I skipped today's run, too. Not that my legs couldn't have taken it, but I was up and out the door at 6:30 a.m. and didn't get home 'til after 8 p.m. and I want to be in bed in another half-hour to get plenty of sleep for tomorrow's Fifth Avenue Mile. I figure after four days off - and with the pain all gone today - my legs should pump out a pretty good mile time tomorrow. Considering I did a 5K at 9:30 miles, I believe I can do a mile in 9:15. If I were having an insanely good day tomorrow, perhaps a 9:00 could be remotely achievable, but I'll definitely be proud of myself with a 9:15.

Went down to Chelsea Piers this morning, to await Bryan's arrival at pier 59 via the Hudson River at 8:00. No Bryan. I was there 'til 8:30 and was scanning the river for an hour previously. Didn't see a swimmer, handcuffed or otherwise, nor did I see a kayak escort. What happened?
