On Friday I did a 4 mile run. 🏃🏻♂️ Around half way, a Red-tailed Hawk flew low over my head and struck at prey in the lawn across the street. Then, before I could get my phone out, flew up into a tree. You can see it there: the bird-shaped smudge about 2/3rds up.
For our main meal today I fried us up some blue-corn battered wild-caught cod in coconut oil. Delicious!

The view out my window right now. (Actually, now that I’m posting this, the view is a little less purpley and rather more orangey.)
My workout was a medium-length run of 3.97 miles which I ran in 1:06:45, but that was not my only activity. Besides that, I also hiked a similar-length trail at Homer Lake with Jackie.
The walk was especially nice, and we’re very pleased that (with her new bionic hip) Jackie is once again able to walk reasonable distances. We walked about 2.72 miles in 1:24. There were some very nice views of Homer Lake, as well as some deer, some blue jays, and a handsome snek that I failed to get a decent picture of.
I did get a decent picture of Jackie:
Besides the pictures from Homer Lake, I also got a picture of a handsome Red-tailed Hawk while I was out running, taken quite close to home. (See at the top of this post.) He was still there as I returned home.
I should mention that the run was actually quite a bit longer than my exercise-tracking app gave me credit for. (Google Fit estimates the distance at 4.46 miles.)
You can get an idea of just how much my exercise-tracking app shorted me from this map, if you know that I ran around the lake at the north end of of my run (and not as the map suggests, through it), and that I generally followed roads and paths (without cutting nearly as many corners as the map suggests).
I want to reassure people that I will not be posting all of my workouts going forward. I just wanted to post a representative strength training session and run, so that I’d have then here as examples.
(The grey Honda to the left is also our car. It’s parked way over to the left in a very wide space, making me comfortable with parking the Subaru way to the left in its space.)
Drinking an Evil Horse Trot Hopple IPA. @jackieLbrewer is foregoing beer until she’s off more of her meds. At @biggrovetavern.
As someone who is the very opposite of “handy,” I’m quite chuffed to have successfully installed our new showerhead!
Hanging in the shade with my sweetie.
Now there’s a show I’d pay money to see!
