Running 30:00 
Running with Presto after lab! I didn't get enough sleep last night, so I was pretty exhausted, but my stress level has dropped substantially now that I only(?) have to finish up all my experiments and make copies of all my frozen stocks to send to Cornell by the end of the month, so the run felt great!
I feel like I've sort of gotten inured to pandemic life most of the time. Periodically I realize that something I now think of as normal is not, in fact normal. (Like the fact that I feel naked without a mask outside the house, for instance.) But every once and a while something happens that makes me think WOW we are in a PANDEMIC.
Up until very recently Berkeley has kept COVID surveillance testing separate for students and faculty/staff. I've been going to faculty/staff testing, which always has a few people at it, but at most like 5-10 people at a time. Today was the first time I went to the combined student/faculty/staff testing site. Wow. This really felt like one of those moments where I'm like: This. This will be one of the pictures in the history books for 2020.
My appointment was apparently just before students get up and out of bed (note to self: book appointments earlier in the morning...). I got there and noticed the 6-foot spacing stickers on the ground for an entire block, but there were only 2 or 3 people in front of me in line, so I didn't really process what those stickers meant about the scale of this testing center. About 3 minutes after I arrived, there were over a hundred people in line. It was insane.
The set up was also insane. It was in a HUGE gym (with all the doors open and fans blowing and stuff), and there were ~60 testing stations in the room. We all checked in and a person directed us to our testing spot with flags like some sort of air traffic controller. When 6 people were lined up, they gave us instructions, and then waved us all into our bank of testing stations, where they had us do our tests simultaneously, and then file out for the next 6 people to take our place. Describing it just doesn't really do the surreal-ness of the experience justice, but it's just hard to wrap my mind around the fact that that was a medical procedure.
