5 at 5 Day 23

5.3 miles, 69 Degrees, overcast and muggy. I’ve heard that the Romans didn’t have a concept of hours and minutes like we do.  They had ‘morning’ and ‘midday’ and ‘afternoon’, but not 9:00AM or 2:23PM.   This meant that their days naturally flexed with the solstices and the natural rhythm of the planet.  You didn’t…

5.38 Miles, 60 Degrees, Sunny and absolutely beautiful.  Very low humidity. Longest day of the year yesterday.  Sunrise at 5:08 yesterday, 5:09 today.  It’s all down hill from here!

5.24 miles, 75 degrees, overcast and muggy. Two days out from the summer solstice.  If you haven’t built your henge yet, you’d better get working. 1000% humidity this morning.  Could have worn a Jacques Cousteau aqualung.  More like swimming through a thick mud-hole than running.  It has been threatening rain for 3 days and reneging…
