Running 28:41  3.0 mi (9:34 / mi)
Just a little jog through the neighborhood. I have an iPod now (a birthday present to myself) and have been using it on my recent runs. I use the Shuffle mode which plays all of the songs in random order. It's funny how the songs that are playing seem to fit what I'm thinking or how I'm feeling at the time. For example, at the beginning of my run today I was thinking I should just turn around because I really didn't have time to be out there. Just then, the song "Up Around the Bend" by CCR came on my iPod. "There’s a place up ahead and I’m goin’ just as fast as my feet can fly. Come away, come away if you’re goin’, leave the sinkin’ ship behind." Well, of course I had to keep on going at that point. I guess it's like your horoscope...you can make it fit if you want to.
As of last night, a 2-day wildfire in Prince William Forest had been extinguished. It burned app. 300 acres in the western part of the park. I might add it was definitely the trashiest and thickest part of the park, so that might be the silver lining.
