Testing the curse

On Sunday, Dana and I ran 15 together, using an old route from the blog. We ran on Sunday because Dana arranged for a mutual friend, Gretchen, to show us (well, mostly the kids) around her fire station. Dana's son, who's 4, was super excited. Mine, who's 2 and adores fire trucks, was too overwhelmed to really enjoy it.

We had a bit of miscommunication and the run started with me waiting half an hour for Dana after I thought I was about 10 minutes late. It was a nice change of pace for me to sit quietly on a log and watch the world go by.

Since Ann wasn't there, we walked up the steepness of Cleator, and we thought maybe there'd be no "incidents"-- as in tripping, falling, sliding, yellowjacket stings or other injuries. Unfortunately (or fortunately, for Ann) it didn't hold true. Dana tripped twice and rolled her ankle a bit.
