AM: 9.3 miles on the Pipeline Trail. Got out there at 7:30 which I thought would be early enough to avoid the mountain bikes. I was wrong. I need to work on having more charitable feelings towards them.

Did some reading last night on cortisol and dopamine and how this current time maximizes the production of cortisol and has deprived us of the dopamine moments in life. The symptoms are very much like PTSD.
