Weirdest thing this morning. Bright, sunshiny day. I was working on the deck. Suddenly, it started to rain. I looked up and there was lie, one cloud, over my deck. It was like a Charlie Brown thing. Weird.

When was the last time I went on a running date? Must be ten years. Last time I ran with Chris was the Cleveland Half Marathon, May 15, 2016 -- when it snowed.
Today was very enjoyable, and inspiring. Not only was it a great five mile run, but I had a partner to run with, we talked about training and diet and theater and everything, and I got to be a tour guide, pointing out places of interest through Forest Hill Park.
You know I love being a tour guide.
Chris told me about some upcoming events, and also running organizations which sounded appealing, including We Run This City and an after-work club I have to check out. More on these in the future, I hope.
Climate: sunny & bright
Mood: pretty good
Haven't run more than five miles since the beginning of March. Yes, the sciatica hurts. Last night it made sitting to watch a play for two and a half hours seriously irritating. But what I am supposed to do, not run?
