"You're too short!" says Beth, as she takes a spider web in the face while running behind Kristin. "Uh, I mean, you're exactly the right height, but ...". We loop past the home of Monday's friendly Weimaraner puppy, but alas he's not waiting for us at the gate today.

Earlier this morning in the pre-dawn gloom Kristin leads the way in an exploratory quest for connections between Dolley Madison Blvd and Balls Hill Rd. A search down Merrimac Dr fails (we're not willing to tresspass or climb fences), but after some nervous scampering over fallen walnuts and acorns, success! — we discover a public cut-through to Evans Mill Rd, by the tennis courts behind the Langley School. A fast young runner leads us back across Hwy 123 just as the light changes. We meet him again an hour later as he returns along Magarity Rd.
