No Boston sprint camp this weekend, in Denver for wedding of Charlie and Rhonda's daughter Jessica, plus the extra benefit of a visit with Kissy.

So of course we were all decked out in our finest --

And even Zack was decked out, having just procured his first suit ever --

The groom's family is Jewish, so a Jewish wedding it was, and quite a fine production. The rabbi had brought his A game. The whole scene was pretty cool.

Jess is an amazing young woman. Zack is growing into a fine young man. The parents have done their job well.

Really glad we went. Weddings can be wonderful things. The vibes this time were as good as you could imagine. We have known C and R and their family for a long time, and it was a joy to witness the end of one chapter of their lives, and the start of another.

And we'll just say nothing about some of the shenanigans that were taking place as the evening wore on. :-)

A new member (as of yesterday) of Kissy's household, Shiva --

9 AM


Played at Fossil Trace this morning. Fine place, lots of fun. At some point it occurred to me that, to reduce a couple of my regular activities to their essence, when I run I feel old (sluggish, no zip), whereas when I play golf I feel young (still a good bit of zip in the swing). Which may have a lot to do with why I am enjoying the latter so much.

road running 25:45 [3] 2.87 mi (8:58 / mi) +13ft 8:56 / mi
shoes: pegasus 4

Once more around Washington Park, not quite as much a struggle as the last couple of days. Getting a little used to the thinner air?

road running 25:20 [3] 2.87 mi (8:50 / mi) +12ft 8:48 / mi
weight:136lbs shoes: pegasus 4

Over to Washington Park and a loop around on the gravel path. Ran with somewhat of a sense of urgency as there were all sorts of ominous looking clouds around and the wind was gusting, but nothing ever happened. Not that I was complaining.

A little bit of soreness from Ascutney yesterday, but the greater concern was how much effort it takes to break 9 minutes for a mile. New threshold for "tempo" pace?

road running 32:35 [3] 2.16 mi (15:04 / mi) +1428ft 9:16 / mi
weight:136.5lbs shoes: pegasus 4

Headed up Ascutney with the intention of going to the end of the road, mix of run and walk, but the running gradually got more difficult and after a couple of miles I thought, hmm, maybe I should just stop here. Took only a few seconds to decide to do exactly that.

road running 18:09 [3] 2.14 mi (8:29 / mi)
shoes: pegasus 4

And back down, often just off to the side of the road to lessen the pounding.

Not what I'd expected for the outing, but better than nothing.

trail running 24:26 [2] 2.09 mi (11:40 / mi) +165ft 10:51 / mi
shoes: pegasus 4

Short run checking out the trails north of Keats Road, not much. Didn't have much zip, nor much ambition.

The latest senior moment -- standing at the entrance to Stop & Shop, calling Gail to see if she needed anything, meanwhile checking as I always do that I have the three essentials (keys, wallet, phone), a moment of panic as I can't find the phone. It is far longer than I might wish until I realize I am talking on it.
