2017-08-07 - Robert the Bruce

~8.0 miles @ ~13.0 min/mi

"Stuck in traffic — don't wait for me!" Kristin texts on a gloomy morning between storms. But she finds a good detour and meets the rump Dawn Patrol as we loop back after a mile. Cut-through pathways are slippery-slick with wet leaves; thankfully, nobody falls. Kerry reports on weekend celebrations including a birthday cake featuring a major typographical error in her son's name. A high-energy puppy wearing the Cone of Shame greets us near a new high-rise condo, where exercise equipment stands idle in the fancy glass-fronted gym.

"Robert the Bruce — wasn't he an early king of Scotland?" We meet a Langley neighbor, Robert, out walking his dog, Bruce. "But what good is a mnemonic that's harder to remember than the data itself?" We pause for iced coffee at mile 6, then sprint back before a deluge of Monday work begins.
