UW had graduation today; while I was biking by the university I saw one guy in shorts, Keds (shoes), and a graduation gown, who was running pretty hard. He was either very happy, or else he was very late--and to me it looked more like the latter. It was really almost too nice a day for graduation, to go by the historical norm, or even by last year's weather. But I guess they had it anyway!
After biking, I headed out for O' at Devil's Claw, where the waiting hills were bigger than the wind. My hill climbing fitness showed; I was able to jog up everything, but it felt the very opposite of fast. On the other hand, I was at least moving fast enough not to pick up any ticks today, so that's something.
There were still some deep and large snowdrifts in the terrain, firm enough to be quite good to run on. By the time I was done, my legs felt pretty smoked. Maybe I should go back to the Forest Service and tell them I have changed my mind and I want all of Laramie Daze to be at Devils Claw (none of it will be, this year), and could they please bring in some fill dirt to make the hills even bigger.
