AM: Easy 3 miles plus 2 mile walk for a total of 5 pedestrian miles.

On a side note, I've greatly reduced my alcohol consumption. I estimate that I was consuming 15 drinks/week on average - beer and wine exclusively. Anyway, for the past couple months, I've reduced that to 3-4 drinks/week, almost exclusively with dinner. This has had three effects: 1. I've lost about 7 pounds, 2. I'm saving a lot of money that can be better spent on baseball and expensive out of state tuition, 3. I'm enjoying the occasional beer or glass of wine that I do consume a lot more.

AM: Friday long run :-). Six miles around Liberty Park. Beautiful, cool morning.

PM: 4 mile hike on the North Slope Trail in Sinks Canyon, Wyoming.

I'm feeling the need for a little solitude so I'm going to drive across a good chunk of Wyoming today. Nothing like Wyoming for solitude.
