pm--7.5 Nice long run midweek w/ a solid crew. Things are starting to come together for kids. It's fun to watch. 
 

I finished About Grace by Anthony Doerr. It's his first novel and about a man who dreams the future, finding his daughter Grace and grace from what he thought was his fate. Great one after it got going.

am--5.25 Bike Path through Dixie Downs w/ 6x striders on grass. I felt peppy by the end.

I finished an interesting book about nurturing revolutionary ideas called Loonshots by Safi Bahcall. Like any good idea book, it has me thinking about applications in the various circles of my life.

pm--5.75 Anasazi w/ the Chipmunk lollipop. I felt good this evening and had a chance to nurture my minor PKD obsession.

pm--5.5 Anasazi to the creosote w/ an addition here and there after the PV Invite. The team had a great weekend. The run was nearly as fabulous once I got a day in the sun out of my slothful legs.

pm--8.5 Vista loop at a nice rhythm pace w/ a good group. The kids did 3x 150 after. The apocalyptic storm seemed to avoid us the entire run.

I finished Philip K. Dick's UBIK. What a mind bender. I'm slowly working my way through his novels. Who knew I was a sci-fi guy?
