AM: 4.4 miles, averaged 10:13. HR 141.

Got some work done and did a short run. Beautiful weather again. Polly Ann was closed just after Waldon, so I rerouted. Lots of road construction. I am hoping whatever they are doing on our road does not increase speeds near our subdivision. 

PM: 60' on the trainer. 211W. HR 146.

Insanely nice weather for April. Sunny and 73ish. The boys went in their kiddie pool in fact. Run was therapeutic but challenging even at a slow pace, but it was good/necessary. 

This will be known as The Day of Turning on the Fountains. The boys and I went to the park and the fountain service was there and I figured out the process of turning on the subdivision fountains. I thought they were testing water quality or something until I saw the rowboat on the top of the truck. It was fun to watch the process and the boys got to see the fountains turn on. They were excited for that. One of those weirdly memorable moments that you cannot really explain (far less to do with the fountains than being together).
