Here. Have a lollie.
WEATHER: Warm and sunny and delightful — 72 degrees and not humid.
MILES THIS WEEK: 9.5

MILES THIS WEEK: 22.
WHERE TO: Beach Drive, Crescent Trail, home.

And while I’d love nothing more than to find my Luther Vandross collection and candles, let me remind you that it’s Sunday, and what I got planned, sweet thang, isn’t a sabbath-day activity (also, Jesus hated Luther Vandross).
Or we could just do something occult-related. Yes, let’s do that. So:
YOUR RUNNING HOROSCOPE
Aries (March 21-April 20) – Today finds you feeling restless and stubborn, like the mighty ram that you are. Though you don’t want to go do those mile repeats, trust me — your body will thank you. Today’s workout will lead you to good fortune and possibly new romantic prospects. Pursue these with alacrity, mindful of the fact that you are compatible with Tauruses but not Cancers.
