Was planning on meeting up with John, but sleep won out for him and I was solo this AM. It was nice weather for running and except for the mouth of Parley's was warm. Took it easy and just tested out the legs after yesterday's race. Overall, very happy with the feel. Southerly loop...

I passed the 2-day test. My legs feel good this morning. It was a nice run in with some spring showers just at the start and just at the finish. Not enough to get me wet but enough to feel refreshing. A&W commute run in.

In lab late last night but took a little longer running in this morning to think some things out for the talk (and relax in this beautiful running weather!). Talk is tomorrow as part of a full day symposium. Did the Memory Grove commute run in.

The talk yesterday went well but it was a long day. From the symposium straight to a dinner that home... I hardly had computer access for yesterday and came in to >60 e-mails. I don't know how the bigwigs do it as I'm sure my boss gets >150 e-mails a day... Although I have to admit ~90% of them never have to be opened. A&W commute run.

Avenues loop with John. The weather was perfect this morning. We got the run in before the wind hit.
