Dangling Mile

I was scheduled to run 4 miles with a friend this morning.  She usually comes to my house, but I decided to meet her at her house.  She is about .42 miles from me so I figured that would be a good warm up and I could get my fast start out of the way going over there.

What a great run!  I love the morning runs, waking up the sun, hearing the night time sounds, seeing a light fog form over the cornfields.  It was truly a beautiful morning.
I wasn't sure how it would go as I had had a few fast runs lately, which usually means my shins pay for it for days after.  I felt pretty good throughout, tired but good.  I'm hoping tomorrow's 7 miler will be equally good.

As we got back to town to the corner where she went left and I went straight, I found myself with a dangling mile.  Who stops a run with .63 left on the end?  Really?  I just had to finish off that mile so I actually complete 5 today rather than just 4.
