While it may not be as majestic as those, Edgewater Park and Lake Erie looked pretty good to me today. This video gives you a look at a very calm lake on a sunny afternoon.
Running was on my list yesterday, but today finally I got back into it after a two-week layoff. The last time I ran it was at Mile Square Park in Los Angeles, probably Oct. 7th. Today the weather was fantastic so I was looking forward to it.
I put in five full miles. Felt great at first, but by my second lap I'd slowed considerably, to a pace that I could maintain for the next three laps. Still, the run went well. Since I'd done a lot of walking in the cities I visited, that helped me stay in shape for running. But...the body curls and crunches I do after running were a different story. Those parts of my body hadn't gotten much exercise at all, and I felt it.
