First order of business: The Uborka! Magic Mile Team currently has only three members, one of whom may be injured. We *know* there are more uborka! runners than this, so sign up HERE to run one single mile.
Secondly, it is still too hot to run, but moreover one is too busy. I took a couple of days off after my trip to York, which involved miles of city walking, a 3.7 mile run which incorporated the River Ouse and several miscellaneous and unintentional streets, and York Parkrun. Now, I hated every minute of the Parkrun, but I’m glad I did it. It was a lap and a half of the racecourse: a flat oval which allowed you to see exactly how far you still had to go. My legs were so tired from walking around York so much, and I happened to be standing near the 30 minute pacer when we set off, which meant I started much too fast. So it all hurt, all the way. But I did it, and Pete took quite a nice photo of me ((nicer than this one)) stopping Runkeeper as I crossed the line.
