I was blessed with a week off and got to spend most of it in Maine with my 3 kids, an hour or so east of Portland. Cool mornings and crisp air made for some first class runs. I even love the pavement on the roads there - baby smooth! My favorite run was out the front door, along the coast road through a small parking lot and out a causeway to the door of a small lighthouse. Most of the way I could run in the middle of the road with no traffic to speak of. My after run routine involved a delicately balanced mix of napping, reading, fishing, eating, drinking and repeating same. Peace to you all, my friends!
