Summer Team on First Day of Spring
Our little summer team gathered for some training at 7:30 on the first day of spring. The day started cool but was warm enough after an hour or so. Faith came out to give us a mission moment, telling us of her recent battle with Hodgkin lymphoma. Then we headed out for our 4 to 7 mile routes, an out and back up Boulevard. My route was 7 miles, and it felt good to do a distance longer than a 10K a week before the Monument Avenue 10K. At the end, a few of us went out for breakfast together.
Here are a few photos from the day.

Minutes into our run, a bird deposited the results of its previous day's meal on Lelia's shirt. Is this good luck? We don't think so, but she took it in stride.
