2013-12-23 - Monday Pre-Dawn Pimmit Hill Trek

~8 miles @ ~11.4 min/mi

"Splish, Splash, Splosh!" Kristin tells me about a Thomas the Tank Engine (children's TV show) episode involving puddles, which we reenact this morning in the warm rain. Wet cedar branches hang low and slap me in the face along Magarity Rd. In turn, I explain retro reflective street-sign material and a variety of optical phenomena including earthshine, halos, glories, sun dogs, and aureoles (not areolas!). Runtastic and Garmin generally agree on track data, as we meander starting near 6am in a modified double loop around the Pimmit Hills neighborhood.
