pm--5 Some tready miles. My leg and knee are feeling tight, and my foot has a weird tweak that disappeared when I started to run. Decent start to the week. 

I finished Pastoralia by George Saunders over the weekend. It's a short-story collection. I'm a fan of the form at the moment.

am--7 Anasazi sandwiched w/ the bike. There were some 55kers on the trail. Their nerves seemed to go when I caught them and told them I wasn't racing. 2 miles in is way easier than 28 miles in.

I also finished The Great Gatsby again. It feels relevant. Also, Fitzgerald hit it out of the park w/ his prose.

pm--8 Anasazi Trail, trailhead-to-trailhead. Tried to take it easy and enjoy the weather. Caterpillars are housing on the blackbrush. Did lots of yard work after. 

I also finished Get in Trouble by Kelly Link. It's a collection of short stories, each with a supernatural twist or two.

pm--5 Loop at Chuckwalla, up Beck's Hill and down Turtle Wall. Nice afternoon. I'm thinking my Suunto calculates elevation gain different than Garmins because I end up with almost 150 feet less than others on the same route. 
 

I also finished Animal Farm by George Orwell and Joseph Smith: the man and the seer by Hyrum L. Andrus. The first reminds me a lot of the political rhetoric of today. The second provides a portrait of an interesting historical figure, using primary sources.

am--7 Anasazi w/ a new extension off the hill from the homestead. I just took it easy and enjoyed the beautiful day. Only downside was the smoky sky from someone burning a lot of weeds. The soundtrack for the day was Life and Death of an American Fourtracker by John Vanderslice and The Worst You Can Do Is Harm by The Long Winters. It was an '02 kind of morning.

pm--3 I almost didn't get a run in today. Age caught up with our Basset virtually overnight, and we had to put him down. We were a minivan of sobbing idiots on the way to the vet. Moses was his name. He's been my profile pic for years. I'll leave him there for a while longer.
