It's 2 miles there...and then I ran 3 miles at about an 8:14 pace (between 10k and half marathon pace). I felt pretty good although after 3 miles it was getting to be a bit more of an effort..then 2 miles back home.
It was interesting: a Paly coach was doing drills with a half-dozen kids (cream of the crop?) ..and they were doing sprints with big drogue parachutes strapped to them! Hilarious...the things you have to do when there are no hills around, eh? (for resistance training I assume).
Then, he had them hopping up the spectator stands and walking back down..2 or 3 sets...made me tired just looking !

I'm still remembering the Yak flying....and ....remembering idyllic summer days flying our 2-33 sailplane with my dad so many years ago. I didn't fully realize how special it was but now I sure do. Sigh, do you ever really get over the loss of your parents? Not really.
