pm--5.25 Loop down by Maverick and up by the mall. I loved the long, gradual climb. In the 90s today.  

It’s taken a while, but I finally finished The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein. The narrator is a dog that loves Formula One racing and his owner. Favorite line from the book: “The car goes where the eyes go.”
