AM: 9.3 miles on the Pipeline Trail. Got up there before 8 am which is essential if you want to avoid crowds, dogs, and mountain bikes.

AM: 1 mile jog, 2 mile walk with Andy

Now a day of grading online school work and wrangling Andy into doing his school work. I'm tempted to say that if you don't have an academically unmotivated child at home, you haven't fully experienced all the joys that this unique time in our history has to offer. Congratulations to all of you that raised motivated children. I should have consulted with you all before I began this child rearing process.

AM: Pipeline Trail plus a lap around the block to make an even 10. Right knee acting up - the pains just rorate around my body from the hips down, fortunately never settling in one place for too long.

AM: 4 laps around Liberty plus some striders.

I'm thinking about running my own personal 5k race in the next few days. Might even try to recruit a much faster pacer.

Noon: 6 laps around Liberty Park plus a couple striders.

Spent the morning driving around placing signs in the yards of our graduating seniors who don't get a graduation. A good experience.

Also finished War Fever by my old friend Randy Roberts and a historian from Georgia Tech that he is now collaborating with named Johnny Smith. It's sort of a parallel biography of 3 men, Babe Ruth, Karl Muck, and Charles Whittlesey, and their experiences in World War I. I hope it sells well because Randy is a great writer and his books should be read by more people. If you like sports, popular culture, and history, he's your man.
