      Nice stinky run! You really ought to try skating on the canal in the winter. I used to just adore doing it when I worked in Ottawa.

      You've been off the radar for me these past few days -- why are you sleeping on your in-laws' floor? That alone would cause me undue amounts of stress, lol. Glad you were out and about today -- some nice miles with some good company! Awesome, can't beat that!

      @Vern, the competitive Aries in me wanted to run some race pace with him and see what happened. ;) but I know better. Who knows, maybe in a little while he'll be faster than me! It isn't impossible. The age grade calculator says my PR is comparable to 1:31 for a dude my age. Ha-ha!

      Meandering and not much to report but feeling springy just sounds like all the fun things. Sometimes I feel like runs like this are the quiet heroes of all the hard training you've been doing, as wonderful as a good race in a totally different way.
