Days 893 and 894 -- Barber Creek Road

From, Interstate 90, exit 102, Barber Creek Road. I have no idea where you go when you exit Interstate 90 at Barber Creek Road. There ain't nothin' around for miles.

I ran yesterday and today. Yesterday I made 7 miles. I was shooting for 8, but it was too darned humid. I actually ended up walking home about a mile. This morning, I ran 6, and I was only shooting for 5. So it all evens out, I guess.

Scout camp has wrapped up for another year. The fourth day is always the hardest. On Thursday, we shift from our normal 9 to 3 schedule. We start at 1, then have a program for the parents at 6:15. You can't expect to have a program at 3, because lots of people have regular jobs, and don't get the summer off. So, after a long, hot week, we have an especially long, hot day. Everyone gets a little frazzled. I did better this year than last, because at least I was expecting it.

Will I do scout camp again next year? I don't know. We'll see how quickly the pain of this one fades.
