I had to watch my youngest while Symphany ran with the team. We ran about 400m and walked some more after that looking at all of the flowers and yard ornaments in peoples yards. Then we came home and I ran my Walgreens-Wabash loop by myself.

I ran about 1.8 miles with Symphany and the team at Lytle park. Came home and ran another 3 around the school. It was very humid but cloudy and cooler.

I ran 3 times around the Douglas Hart main trail. Twice with Symphany and once by myself. It was a beautiful day with cooler temps and low humidity.
