39F humid, it had rained earlier, cloudy.  Karen, Wendy and I ran down 3rd west to the rail trail at State St. then up north to 3200N (didn't want to get muddy to access MCT) east on 3200N was a good uphill.  Karen kicked our trash going up the hill.  I seriously am getting slower with this old fat tired body.  Not complaining, just stating the facts.  I am happy that I can still get out there and put one foot in front of the other.  And I am grateful for dear friends who would run slow with me! :)

30F humid, partly cloudy.  Wendy was short on time so we ran a 3+ mile loop with her.  After dropping her home, I ran Karen home, then I ran back on the loop counterdirection with a faster finish.

27F sunny hazy.  Wendy and I ran to meet Karen, ran 3.5 then picked up Amanda and Leslie who was testing out her hurt leg, half mile later she was hurting so after we dropped Wendy home she turned to walk home.  We then ran around the neighborhood to the east and back to Karen and Amanda's at mile 7.  Then I ran a faster mile home.  Bummer that Leslie is injured.

Happy Straya Day, Aussie Aussie Aussie Oi Oi Oi!!! :) :) :)

Elder Brown, our former ZL (Mortdale) came to visit us after church in the late afternoon.  A few min. later Lowell and Kelsey dropped in on their way home after his 2 weeks old grandson's baby blessing here.  SO great to see them!!! :)  Elder Brown stayed for dinner.  Always great to hear of our missionary's post-mission's life.
