There’s such abundance much is trashed as they move on from site to site.

Cheptegei wore a Strava on WR race. That and other amazing stories here.

Especially now, bored/anxious during the pandemic, Americans are boozing it up like never before. Just as the government warns men to cut back to only one glass per night. Story.

Perchance, bored, you’re reading more. Check out Top Ten Books. And read all the Tom Wolfe you can find. Starting with his fun report on Studs Lonigan, a book I read about 55 years ago.

There was a 5K last night at Dorris Ranch, our first race since November. Results. A lovely course, with hills, on dirt/rooted trails along the Willamette and up and down the rows in a filbert orchard. Probably 1 to 2 minutes slower than a paved, PR course. Most, including Don, were happy to be back in racing mode.
