I'm now north of Downs, heading for Lebanon. (You'll see why when I get there.) I'm smack in the middle of a great big empty. It was a stretch to get out to Portis, yesterday. Now, having visited Downs and Portis, and not wanting to visit Lebanon early, I've got no place in particular to stop. So I picked up this generic picture of a Kansas wheat field at this web site.
I ran 5.3 miles today. It was a little rainy, so I went indoors. With no wind, no hills, and no heavy clothes, I was able to pick up the pace a bit. It felt pretty good. I was pretty tired when I was done, but I recovered pretty quickly.
