Halfway between Knoxville and Chariton is the little town of Belinda, Iowa, where I found the Belinda Toy and Antique Museum. Not a whole lot of info about them on the web. If they have a web site, I couldn't find it. But perhaps I can go there for real some day. (This image is from an Iowa Public Television feature on the museum.)
I did a four mile tempo run today. The first mile was about 9 minutes, the second about 8, the third about 7 (which is really booking, for me) and the fourth about 8 again. It felt good!
