7.5 miles. Hood route to Legacy trail and back. 8:25 pace. Easy cruising. It didn't feel like Autumn this morning, but there was a fragrance of autumn, that I can't explain. Also, that dude from a couple of months back, that was pruning his hedges with a machete pre-dawn. Remember him? Well, he was up this morning, lurking in the shadows, he clapped and yelled good morning at me when i ran by him at 5:45. Well, I guess that's better than swinging a machete in the dark.
