~6.1 mi @ ~14.5 min/mi

"You need a new trail name!" K-Rex declares, when Roadkill refrains from crawling through a web of yellow caution tape at the entrance to Lewinsville Park. Signs warn that the pedestrian bridge is under construction, and pre-sunrise darkness makes the creek invisible within the dense woods. So why this sudden display of common sense? Some mysteries may never be explained. At McLean High School's track Dawn Patrol is again stymied, this time by a chained-shut padlocked fence. But "... neither snow, nor rain, nor heat, nor gloom of night can stay" the quest for caffeine. K2 leads the way to a neighborhood cut-through. Keymaster explains category-theoretic issues of monoids and functors.

"We have corrupted the Youth of Athens!" declares Roadkill during the return trek from Starbucks, not realizing that Keymaster's alma mater is Ohio University in Athens. Management and Labor take turns covering ears to avoid overhearing each other. Can quantum mechanics explain the mind-matter problem? Are we going to slip and fall on the walnuts that bestrew the ground? Unanswered questions abound on a warm and humid morn. A super-speedy bunny sprints across a lawn.
