Loops around Liberty Park then 6 fast striders. Each strider was about .1 equaling .65 combined. Each one a little faster than the one before.

Then I sat on the hill by the pond and watched ducks for a while. Got home in time to see Ann for a few minutes before she headed out for a 12 hour night shift.

Hope you are feeling better. You might have more than a "midlife crisis". Stay aware and honest with yourself.

Yo! It's time for a R2R2R. I have Tuesdays through Saturdays off each week of June and you have every flipping day off. Come with me and hit the north rim. We can hike/run it.
