After 12 days the bronchitis is beginning to recede. Temps are in the 70s as I head upstream from the Adelphi Manor Park cricket pitch. Sucking on a root beer barrel keeps the cough under control. The gravel road climbing to Oakview Dr is as steep as remembered. Milepost markers match GPS readings to within 0.01 mile. |
