Lunchtime run: Eight mile jaunt over hill and dale, sand and wood chip in the gully.

After work run: Six and a half more in the gully.

I wanted to do one medium long run today, but didn't have a time block in my day sufficient so I had to break it up.

Off to Bucca de Beppo now for Andy's adoption day party. It was this day five years ago that we finalized his adoption. On the original day we went to Bucca di Beppo afterwards to celebrate and we've been doing it ever since with various combinations of friends and family.It just occured to me that next year we should invite some friends from this here blog - particularly those who have adopted.
