am--6 I woke up w/ a headache but got out anyway. The run was okay. Sometimes I push it a bit on my own. The legs like a quicker pace while the lungs like a slower pace. hard to find the sweet spot.

pm--6 Barefoot at the softball field. I thought the heat and sore legs would zap me, but today's run was one of the better runs of the week. 
 

I finished The Yiddish Policemen's Union by Michael Chabon. He's one of my favorite writers, and detective fiction is one of my favorite genres. This book mixes both. Yay for the combo.

am--5 Anasazi w/ Tom. Lots of good convo today. I need to check out All Day in the Sun Records, Douglas Rushkoff, Nonviolent Communication by a guy named Rosenberg, and I'm sure there's something else I'm missing.

am--6.25 Anasazi to the Homestead w/ Tom. I'm glad we're back in the habit. 
 

I finished Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi. It follows the generations of two half sisters from Ghana--one a slave and the other the wife of a slaver--to America and back. Quite an engaging read.

am--6 Grass Loops. I'm hitting the grass 2x a week. It's relaxing and prepping me for going full-sandal in the future, if I ever so choose. I wish the threats of rain would come to fruition.

I finished a great book, Gilead by Marilynne Robinson. It's a book made of an old father's diary to his young son. Lots about character and relationships.
