2022-06-18 - Kensington Parkrun 5k Talk Walker

~3.1 mi @ ~21 min/mi

2022-06-08 - Secret NIH History Warehouse

~3.8 mi @ ~16 min/mi

The steep dirt pedestrian path from Morris Park in Gaithersburg leads across Muddy Branch and through the woods to big satellite dishes and an anonymous building at the dead-end of Industrial Dr – see the National Institutes of Health's history Twitter account https://twitter.com/historyatnih for info on the low-profile vault and the move there a few months ago. Thunder begins, and soon thereafter, torrential rains!
