They are super outgoing then me and Brandon went to a cards/cubs game in St Louis for fathers day. Sunday. (and the Cards won) Yay!

      Thanks Pierre, Darrell, Francis, Sandra and Lowell. I set out to do at least six miles, but did do a extra two, then felt guilty for not doing ten when I was done. But did not feel energetic and super enthusiastic. Thanks for your encouragement!

      Don't worry, Doug, it's not all about the numbers. It's about getting your walk when you need a walk. I usually put my time in by "how fast was I going?" because I know my speeds from having timed them many times before. But it doesn't really matter!
