      There were a few trees down on the northern section as well. Always cool to see some deer when out running. Good job on what was definitely an unfriendly weather morning.

      I know those well. We all need them too, as a contrast for the good ones. How else would we know they're good if we never have a bad? ;-P Way to put this together and get ahead of the rain!

      I've had a few of those debates. You are a good debater since you won this argument. I've also had runs like that - let's just chalk it up to Monday. You got it done, Michael.
