2017-09-20 - Welcome Molly

~9.7 miles @ ~12.7 min/mi

"Cold water makes me happy!" says Kristin when we pause to sip from the fountain at the end of our run. Molly Hickman dips a toe into the Dawn Patrol ocean and joins us at 0545 for a 2.8+ mile loop around Pimmit Hills. Hawk-eyed Kristin spies a rabbit in her flashlight's beam; I saw a fox as I drove in. After Molly is safely back to our starting point from her initial experiment, the Patrol continues into downtown McLean to revisit Waggaman Circle. A couple out for a walk gives us directions (and advises, "It's hilly!") as we enter and greets us again as we emerge.

"Look — two candles and a plate of food on a table outside the front door!" Rosh Hashanah Eve begins at sunset today. Perhaps it's an early celebration tradition? "Shanah Tovah Umetukah" to us all!
