Hiking (Street & Trail) 1:21:34 [3] 3.34 mi (24:25 / mi) +49m 23:22 / mi

Penn State Campus, State College, PA. Max, Peggy, David Onkst, and I walked around the Penn State Campus so that Max could get continue to form ideas about what colleges he might apply to next fall. It was raining and windy initially but it became more pleasant. I hadn't been feeling that great after sitting at my desk so long the last couple of days (instead of working out) and the walk was just what I needed. Our visit coincidentally coincided with graduations. Most of the ceremonies for different colleges in the university had just ended. Grads and their families were walking around in all of their finery. We stopped at the Nittany Lion sculpture to take pictures--this is the most photographed spot on campus. Initially there was a long line but when we swung past the second time there was just one person and his overzealous mom taking slow pictures. We heard the next day Sunday, May 8th) that the sculpture had been vandalized at night. Someone broke off an ear and poured red paint on it.

Running (Street & Trail) 20:10 [3] 2.0 mi (10:05 / mi) +10m 9:56 / mi
slept:5.5 weight:208lbs (injured)

From Cedar Ln., out and back on the Rock Creek Trail to E. Stan Hope Rd. On the way back, my left leg was getting more tired than my right. I think I'd been favoring it since my right knee hurts. Today, my knee didn't hurt so much except for starting out. I started pushing more on my right leg to compensate for the fatigue and my pace improved. Even though there was a very gradual gain in elevation returning, I was faster coming back.

Running (Trail) 22:10 [3] 2.25 mi (9:51 / mi) +10m 9:43 / mi
slept:8.0 weight:207.8lbs (injured)

Great Falls National Park, MD. From the Angler's Inn parking lot, the Berma Rd. to the Lock 16 Spur Trail and back. Rain had started before I got to the park. It slowed down before I started but once I got going, it fell harder again. It was just under 60 F. It was invigorating so maybe some adrenaline kicked-in. I got to the turnaround point right at 11:00 minutes but had already started slowing down before getting there. I was slower going back mainly from being out of shape. My knees didn't feel too badly. The Berma Rd. is gravel and dirt, so softer than what's around my house, but not as soft as the forested orienteering or terrain running.
