biking 40:30  10.53 mi (3:51 / mi) +283ft 3:45 / mi
First time out on the bike this year. Had to put a lot of air in the tires, but otherwise it seemed to work OK, the shifters shifted, the brakes braked.
Just a short outing, up to Montague. No falls. :-)
Nice outing yesterday. Drove to Litchfield, picked up mom, then down to Southport to visit her brother Larry (7 years younger, half-brother actually). Stayed about an hour, then back to Litchfield. Jamie managed pretty well, certainly as well as could be hoped, interacted with Larry enough so that I'm pretty sure he really enjoyed it.
And a surprise to me was a little gift Larry had for her (it was her birthday, #97), a photo of Jamie and her mom at the train station in Munich in 1935. Never seen the photo before.
trail running 49:14  5.2 mi (9:28 / mi) +320ft 8:57 / mi

Stopped at McLeans on the way home, ran Charlie's loop. Overcast, not warm, bit of rain. Ran along at a nice pace, doing OK, getting up the ups OK, but then out of nowhere a twinge in my left calf. Didn't really feel like walking the last mile and a half, and it wasn't that bad, so ran in as gently as I could, but it will be hurting for a while. Bummer.
Guess it's time to get out the bike....
road running 17:49  1.7 mi (10:29 / mi) +450ft 8:23 / mi

Up (10:52) and down (6:57) South Sugarloaf. Better than I thought I would manage when I started.
Quite the last couple of days on the national scene -- court rulings on Obamacare and gay marriage, plus what seems like movement to diminish the status of the Stars and Bars.
None of this really affects me directly. Or so I thought. Until I got to the last paragraph of the NY Times article on the service in Charleston and Obama's eulogy --
Andrew Weiner, 59, who is white, said, “White people have got to challenge it when someone says something racist in private. We have to start dealing with all this.”
I don't have to think very hard to remember various times in the past when someone has said something clearly and distinctly racist, and I have kept my mouth shut. Because it wasn't worth making a scene. Because it wouldn't do any good. Because I had to deal with this person in one way or another (the usual circumstances being either town politics or in my tax business.). Because it was easier to just shut up.
None of those reasons are any good.
Time to change my game.
Easy to say, of course. It will be interesting to see if anything really changes. I know I will be tested.
