Adventure Of sorts. I found a new and safer way to cross the diagonal highway, taking me from the Post Office to the High School. I chose to cut through the High School grounds, instead of taking the planned route around it. Fences around the school's construction zones redirected me, however, and I ended up going around it anyway, but on the wrong (long) side.
Actually it was quite enjoyable. I saw kids playing baseball, soccer, volleyball, and sports I didn't even recognize this lovely Sunday afternoon. Lots of proud parents too, and it looked like maybe more than a few grandparents.
I lost track of the distance, because of the detour, but I think I went about 15 minutes per mile, and I know the time was 2:16:17, so I'm saying that I went 9 miles. No problems, no whining.

Nice Walk These are the days that I will remember throughout the winter. Cool, dry, and with the trees entertaining us with their colorful fall plumage. We had a very nice speedy walk, Karon and I today, going 3.7 miles in just under an hour.

Uneventful Hospital Loop Four miles takes me past the hospital and my doctor’s office. About 56 minutes, for a pace of about 14 minutes/mile.

Another Grocery Run. 6.7 miles or so to the organic grocery. We shopped and backpacked the food back home, stopping at another grocery on the way. The hike took about 2:45:00, but that includes the time at the stores and several other stops. A very nice hike.

Long-Sleeve Shirt Day And how. The temperature wasn’t too bad, but the wind was 22 mph gusting to 29. For once I was glad every time the sun came out. 4.1 miles in 1:03:57, for a pace of 15:36. There are 10 stoplights on the route that I took today, and I waited for several , so I’m happy with the time.

Nice 8-mile walk/run in 1:57:07, for a pace of 14:38.
