This mouse, from The Cheese Shop in Pinconning, looks very familiar. His twin lived in a little town not far from here. His name was Igor. Don't believe me? Here's Igor: OK, "twin" might have been an exaggeration. But they clearly have some of the same mouse genes. Last time I looked, Igor had retired, unless they were just getting him refurbished, and now he's back. Or perhaps they were painting him brown and shipping him to Pinconning.
Mother nature did me a favor this morning by helping me to acclimate to the heat. It was pushing 70 when I walked out the door at 6:00, and 10 miles later, I was pretty sweaty. But it's almost certainly going to be that warm by noon next Sunday, and I am certainly going to have run more than twice as far. So today, I officially changed my marathon goal from Personal Record (PR) to Don't Die (DD). If I get a DD, I'm going to be happy.
The forecast: Mostly sunny, low of 58, high of 78. A bit better than yesterday, but still not fun.
Updates: Mrs. Jogger tells me that when she drove by the other day, Igor was back in place.
The updated forecast for the weekend: Partly cloudy, low of 56, high of 73. Do you get the feeling that this isn't an exact science?
