    Got a nice apple crop this year. This drought better not hurt them. Good cooldown and I think the trees appreciated it.

      I know what you mean - I generally wring them, hang them for as long as possible and then roll and bag them and hope for minimal leakage. You could hang them in the car I suppose and then have them bake. Still worth it to get the run in!

      Hoping it keeps getting better. A bend at the waste and hold (very little stress) as I put hands toward feet, is my best hamstring exercise. I do it after ever run and seems to help my hamstring issues. Of course, some unsolicited advice is exactly what you were looking for!
