The Eagle Has Landed

NSP Community Center 5 mi in 43:09, pace 8:38. That felt fast enough today. With some upper-body resistance training afterward, I feel tapped out. But it finishes 35 miles on the week; I start the new week on Saturday and won’t be running tomorrow. Next week 40 miles if all goes well. That’s a challenge during Christmas.

We spotted two eagles perched on the ice near the open water of Lake Woebegone. Fishing? Waiting for a silly goose to come too close? One eagle flew, but we got a hazy long-distance shot of the other. You can also (barely) see swans on the opposite lake shore, though we didn’t notice them while taking the picture.

The new pressure tank is working fine. Now I just have to figure out what to do with the rusty old steel tank ...

He's ice-fishing, of course. Very cool.

Perhaps she is. Very good!
