am--6.25 Anasazi to the homestead w/ Ben. Nice chat. It's been such a blessing to know the dude. He makes a place better. 
 

I finished Wizard And Glass by Stephen King. It's the 4th installment of the Dark Tower series, which is a good mix of dark fantasy and western w/ some horror elements.

am--7.25 I had to get out in the dirt today and add a bit more here and there to achieve the monthly climbing challenge. It's been probably 18 months or so of climbing at least 2k of vert every month. It's the one performance aspect of running I've grabbed onto since the beginning of COVID.
