Highlight of the Week:
Steven made homemade cinnamon rolls for breakfast on Saturday. Oh wait, this is a running post. Seeing a beautiful baby deer perfectly framed by an opening in the woods and lit by gorgeous sunlight during my Sunday run… and capturing a photograph of that moment.

- If the Garmin 405 freezes in the middle of a run, you can do a soft reset, and continue running with the same data from before the freeze. I hope I never have to use this information again.
- If I want to do “first thing in the morning” runs, they are really going to feel the best if I have given myself 30-45 minutes to wake up.
- Do not eat a vegan hot dog before a run.
Reminders for next week:
- Focus on keeping my arms closer to my body when running.
