A Simple Running Log

This morning, I had an early work assignment, so I got up early to get my run in first.

It was just an easy 4-miler on the schedule. I layered up, because it was still ridiculously cold outside, but at least all the snow on the roads had melted yesterday and the damn wind had finally died.

I got in a lap around the 4.5-mile loop in 37:something. It was an 8:21/mile average, I remember that much. Other than the fact nothing on me — including my legs — felt anything less than frozen until I was almost done, it was a pretty good easy run.

The assignment for work was following around a bunch of high school engineering kids to three different manufacturing companies in the county, so they could see what job opportunities are there and maybe come back after they graduate from high school. And the first stop was at M&M Inc., led by Clark Andrews, mechanical engineer.

It was weird to No. 1, see Clark at work, talking to a bunch of people about the job he describes in much more colorful terms at home and, No. 2, take notes for the paper on what my own husband was saying.

This was my favorite picture I took today:

  1. Hey, ask Clark if he feels old when he sees this picture. 😀

    • I don’t know if he felt old, but he was a little embarrassed when he found out they use more advanced design software in school than M&M does!

  2. I just showed Huey the picture; he wants to know if the kid behind Clark is from the Justice League.

    • Hahaha good guess, but that kid’s just already wearing the safety glasses they were issued for later in the tour, when they went out in the shop!
