7.04 miles on Hiline.  I kind of get the road to myself now that they have it shut down from Tyhee Rd to almost Chubbuck Rd to build the new intersection at Siphon Rd.  This is a 5 month project...yuck.

I got a late start today as we were up late yesterday with the excitement of the arrival of granchild #6 yesterday at 4:47pm.  Mom and baby are doing Great.  Grandchild #7 is due in September.

I told myself that this would help get me heat acclimated.  Well it was 80 degrees by the time I finished!

18.09 mile loop all inside town.  Around mile 13 I went through the Wellness Center and they were setting up for a family fun fair.  Looked awesome!

Longest run so far this year.  20+ next Saturday?
