Happy Coast Guard Day – Wednesday – August 4, 2021

How am I feeling today? A bit of a gloomy, overcast, and muggy start to the day outside, but it is Coast Guard Day which means that I celebrate the United States’ oldest continuous sea-going service’s birthday, whose history dates to the Revenue Cutter Service. Happy birthday to the U.S. Coast Guard. It seems like the photos and stories that I tell myself and others … Continue reading Happy Coast Guard Day – Wednesday – August 4, 2021

Reality – Saturday – July 31, 2021

Somehow, I managed to get through the day without running, and even though I really did try to keep things easy, I still did over the 10,000 steps for the day.  At least my head has cleared … Continue reading Longer Intervals – Saturday – July 24, 2021

Strides – Thursday – July 22, 2021

How am I feeling today? Okay, I would rather that circumstance had let me go on the trip/vacation that I have been looking forward to for several months. However, with the rising number of COVID hospitalizations, I chose to cancel my trip and am good with that decision. It doesn’t mean that I am not a bit frustrated or down about not seeing loved ones, … Continue reading Strides – Thursday – July 22, 2021
