Early morning group: 6.25 miles running today. I'm not sure about speed, we stopped a couple of times, so that goofed it up. If I had to hazard a guess, I'd say 6.2 or 6.3 mph average.

she got it from john and i, who regifted it. mom gave it to john a few christmases ago. but they sell them at walmart; they are with the fitness equiptment and wieghts and things.

Actually, I got a new one from bi-pod. I think you can get them from walmart and other places though. My running buddies have got these cool lights that you wear on your arms for visibility purposes. I want some of those. And hey, does anyone know where you can get pepper-spray? I would feel safer if I had some kind of defense, now that I'm doing pretty much all of my running in the dark.

i dunno where you can get pepper spray, but if you call your local police station, they can tell you, if they don't have themselves.

Here's a homemade recipe:

Red Pepper Spray

* 1 unpeeled onion
* 1 unpeeled head of garlic
* 1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
* 3 pints of water

Chop the onion and garlic and combine all ingredients in a saucepan. Simmer for 20 minutes. This should give your kitchen an eye-watering scent (have tissues ready). Cool and strain into mason jars which can be kept in the refrigerator for about 6 weeks. To use dilute 1 tablespoon of this concentrate with 1 pint of water.
