Easy like a Sunday morning route

Mushroom cluster at the end of our run
The last 2 weeks I have been dealing with headaches and general fatigue, so much so that I skipped the Columbia Gorge 1/2 marathon for the first time since the race started 8 years ago. Susan had come down with a cold and an infection on one of her fingers, so we decided we would take it easy and only run 15 miles. I was just going to reuse one of our previous routes, but we only had one 15 mile route labeled and we had used it recently. I came up with moderate 15 mile route that I thought would be perfect for a mellow Sunday morning.

While I was waiting for Susan to pick me up I listened to "Sunday" related songs on Spotify and started a playlist, but didn't make it very far. Some of the lyrics seemed very appropriate for our overcast, Sunday morning fun. 

Maroon 5, "Sunday Morning"
That may be all I need
In darkness, she is all I see
....
But things just get so crazy, living life gets hard to do
Sunday morning, rain is falling and I'm calling out to you

The Velvet Underground, "Sunday Morning"
Sunday morning
Praise the dawning
It's just a restless feeling
By my side
