2011-08-25 - Derwood Loop with CM

~6.5 miles @ ~11.2 min/mi

"This run is all your fault!" I tell Cara Marie Manlandro as we struggle up another hill. It's an allusion to her comment on 2011-08-09 - RCT with CM. Mid-day is warm in her neighborhood as we set off in a pseudo-random-walk that takes us onto segments of the Millennium Trail, abridged by side streets. Rain pours down in torrents, pauses, returns as light drizzle. CM and I reminisce about past runs, commiserate about humidity, discuss training plans for upcoming races, compare injuries. Congrats: her and George's fifth wedding anniversary is coming on 9/9; Paulette and I reach our 33rd on 9/6. Afterwards at the Rockville Taco Bell parking lot I practice discreet beach-towel-aided quick-change into dry clothes, as taught by Mary Ewell long ago (cf. 2008-05-17 - CJSVT with Mary etc.).
