I ran 3.5 out of 10 miles this morning

Not even halfway through my 10-mile run this morning I turned the corner in Miller Park and I see two sets of eyes glowing in the light of my headlamp. “Fuck,” I think. “Coyotes.” I don’t know why I thought that. I was in a park in the middle of the city where
