  1. I can't remember the last time I posted. Was it March? April? I've been in a time warp since mid-March, so it's hard to remember anything anymore. I think the last monthly recap I did was February, so that's fun. Although my employer (local health department) is on the front lines of COVID, I can't say that I'm necessarily on those lines. The epidemiologists, disease investigators, and contact tracers are on those lines, as well as our environmental health folks, who have been tasked with enforcement of emergency orders. I sort of think of my colleagues as the offensive and defensive lin

  2. And I didn't even get out to see most of it. Just the views from Denver and Franktown. But it was a great long weekend anyway. T-Rex got to see her boy, we met his parents, and we spent a little time with some old friends. Not working for 5 days was good, too. Got a couple of runs in on Friday and Saturday. Friday was in Franktown. That's a half hour south of Denver, if you were wondering. There's not much there, which is fine. Lots of big houses, spread out over lots of area. Our friends live at the top of a hill with spectacular views both near and far. I was going to keep it

  5. My family has done a couple of escape rooms; one in Chicago, and one in Ferndale and enjoyed them. It is great that they both had way of getting you audio hints when you get stuck. I found that you really have to pay close attention to what the clues say when solving them.

  7. here's another data point - in university I never ran slow, because I was the slowest guy on the team.. had to go hard while everyone else was running easy.. my long runs on my own were also hard, since I figured I needed the extra work.. Left that, went into the army where they wouldn't let me run enough (ha) and got even slower. Out of the army, by this time had run six marathons between 3:10 and 3:06 and thought that was it for me, maybe could get down under 3:05 one day.. started training with a bunch of ultramarathon guys who did long runs of 3-6 hours at easy jog pace.

  8. I was doing calculations in my head about my paces and was relieved when I saw the bit about easy pace being relative to your race pace. Mine is a fair bit slower than it used to be, so I'm glad I don't have to slow my slow runs so much. Much slower and I'll be walking.
