Ran to the park and instead of doing my 1-mile loops I went off into the woods and ran the trails. I haven't been doing this because they are very small loops and formerly were not well marked. As I recall there is some single track but I couldn't even find it. Recently a group of (I assume Boy Scouts) put in some trail markers, which helps. Still very flat and the trails are wide, but the trees provided a good wind block. I might run them more to see if I can get the pattern. The young folks use these for part of the cross country course. Not much of a cross country course without a single hill.

Kind of an anxious end-of-semester mess even though it is better than most semesters as I am no longer a student and not writing a dissertation.

Cutback week continues. Doing a workout in the wind would not have been fun today.

Hope all goes with the end of semester stuff, still better than Home Depot, right?

I might be coming back to Warren in January, will let you know.

It's not so bad. I just have terrible focus.

I have to say not working at 5:15AM on Black Friday was a nice change from last year.

We will be right here, hopefully being neither frozen solid nor buried in snow.
