AM: 2 mile walk. Probably a day off unless I feel up for a short jog this evening.

On this day in 1861, Union General John Buford, commanding just one brigade of cavalry managed to delay the advance of the entire Confederate army north of the town of Gettysburg. This action gave the Union army time to occupy the high ground around Gettysburg which proved decisive in the ultimate Union vicrory.

Despite this, no major U.S. military installation is named after General Buford while several are named for the men he defeated that day. Sad.

AM: 9 miles in the Dimple Dell gully.

On this day in 1863, the First Minnesota saved the Union at Gettysburg by whupping up on a bunch of secessionists from Alabama. The Minnesota regiment lost over 80% of its' men depriving several small towns in southeast Minnesota of young men for the next generation.

Also, Ann and I got married on this day in Pine River, Minnesota in 1994. We'll be celebrating tonight by watching Andy play baseball in Roy.

AM: 14.5 miles at Jeremy Ranch. Didn't time the run, so no idea of pace. It was 52 degrees at the start which mad the run much more enjoyable than usual in July.

The school board voted to open school pretty much as normal in a few weeks. Going to seem strange to be confined to a windowless room with 35 teenagers at a time.

AM: 8.25 sluggish miles up at Round Valley. 80 degrees at 9 am when I started and quite a bit warmer when I finished, no shade.

Sad to hear of the passing of the great John Lewis - the kind of person we should be building monuments to in this country.

Why the jumping jacks? It just came to me at the end of the workout that it was something I should do.

Thought about runing today but no dice. Was too achy when I woke up in Bozeman and then it was 101 degrees when I got home.

Hoping for a solid 14/15 tomorrow morning.
