After a fun run to the Baskett Butte on Thursday and a scouting run over parts of an upcoming local 5k course on Friday, I was ready for a long run on Saturday. I parked 5 miles from where friends would be starting at 8:00 AM.I left myself 42 minutes to cover the 5, though I know they never start on time. I ran at a very comfortable pace and came in at 8:02, feeling really good. I haven’t run with a group in a long time, and the 10 miles with friends went by very fast. The 5 miles back to my car was into the wind and I was feeling a little fatigued but still felt really good.
Good enough, in fact, to notice evidence of how illiterate we’ve become.

See, you really do have to travel through bad to get to good, some times. I finished at the old Eola Inn, now a Rockin’ Rogers, still with a lovely view of the dump, unless you aim the camera correctly.
