Sorry about the unexplained silence. I think I forgot to mention that we went to the Tri-State Route 66 Festival this weekend. I’m playing catch-up today after being out of town, but I’ll have photos for you ASAP.
Jackie and I had a good run this morning — four miles at LaFortune Park. I didn’t have a stopwatch, but we built in some walk breaks and tried to keep our pace down to something manageable. The weather wasn’t bad — it’s 80 degrees at the moment, and I think it may have been a degree or two cooler when we started our run — and a lot of the trail was in the shade, which helped. It also helped that we encountered a very cheerful runner who would grin and raise her fists in the air and yell, “Good morning, ladies! You’re beautiful!” every time we met her on the trail. Runners like that can make all the difference.
Here is our quote for the day, courtesy of the passenger’s side of my car:
“Argue for your limitations, and sure enough, they’re yours.”
— Richard Bach
I’m glad Jackie called and woke me up early, because I was tempted to sleep in, and I really have a lot to do today: three or four sections’ worth of calculus homework, errands (including picking up Walter and the dogs from the vet’s office where we boarded them this weekend), housecleaning, and a little gardening.
Not sure how much of that I’ll finish in the next few hours, but I’m guessing I’ll accomplish more if I get offline and take a shower so I can get to work. Film at 11….
