Immoderate

Eliot and Asa took me to Eisenhower Park for a two-hour run this morning. (Supportive spouse: check!) Thank God there was a forklift in the parking lot.

Father’s Day

Another good good day. Eliot’s back pain wasn’t too bad, so we were able to go to the Botanical Gardens and feed some ducks. One almost took off Asa’s finger, but happily, he left with ten.

65 minutes

Made it 65 minutes yesterday. Whoop! Going for 90 today. A big jump, but the sooner I can free myself from the aquajogger, the better for everyone. I’ve got my Leadville course map out and I can’t wait to get back there. More on that later; Gotta drive my mom to the airport.
