All the way home

A quick note to report on the 10k: It's over, and I accomplished my goal of improving my time from last year's race. It was a little iffy at first -- the first mile-plus is very bright and sunny, with no shade anywhere, which is not exactly my ideal running condition. But I picked it up somewhere around the three-mile marker and finished just fine.

And, moments from now, my house will be blessedly empty. My folks are over at my sister's house, helping with house projects, and Darren's headed out for a paddle. My goals for the afternoon are to shower, rehydrate myself, read and maybe take a little nap, then rejoin the family for dinner. In short, a perfect August afternoon.
