of this morning's run.
The incident got me to thinking about some of the times when I have been out running and was called on to help someone. Like all runners, I am quite often stopped and asked for directions to some place or other by passing drivers. They usually assume you are running close to home and have local knowledge, but more often than not, I'm on a long run and don't know much about the area other than the route I am running. Maybe it's a product of age, but even in Copa I couldn't tell you the name of many streets I run down frequently. I like to think I see the big picture, and don't worry too much about the details, but that doesn't help the navigationally challenged.

Today's run wasn't nearly as interesting, but I was pleased to get around my regular Thursday morning 11km at a reasonable pace. My legs and lower back have definitely loosened up this week and I'm moving faster and more efficiently with the same effort.
