Dew really messes up the shoes, because they get wet and pick up all sorts of dirt and dust, which becomes mud. Further, the dew gets into the very-ventilated running shoes and gets the socks wet and dirty. Oh my, oh my. It sparkles in the morning sun though, and it’s cool on the feet, so I look forward to the dew anyway. Shoes and socks are washable.
We had a dewy morning today, and I had a very lovely run. The creatures are all out now; I saw egrets and red-winged blackbirds, four deer, a rabbit, a hawk out cruising for that rabbit, several crows,

I ran 6.05 miles on the grass/dirt trails in 1:04:52, for a pace of 10:43. I thought I was doing a little better than that, actually, but apparently my legs were a little tired. The total running mileage for the last three days adds up to 25.4, plus I also walked a 5k on Sunday.
Whining: I did feel a little signal from the right knee, probably the patellofemoral syndrome (PFS) letting me know that the distance and the variable footing might become an issue. No problem - I’ll take it easy tomorrow and Thursday.
