I'm an editor at a newspaper in Bremerton, Washington and head coach of the Bremerton Jaguars youth track and field team.

Basketball in the a.m., then 1.5 after Jaguars practice becuase the sun was still out and it was a pleasant evening.
Finally took an aftenoon off, and ran the bridge-to-bridge loop after the rain stopped. Turned out to be a wonderful later afternoon for a run, and I kept a brisk pace though probably started a little too quickly. 37:00
