To Baldwin Wallace and Back..again…easy this time

My “back and forth” trip to Baldwin Wallace and back was a bit of a whirlwind. But the driving was easy (for a change) and the visit rewarding, at least for me.

I took the southern route as there is less truck traffic on it, save the stretch between Dayton, OH and Indianapolis, IN on I-70. A LOT of trucks on that stretch! And beware: going from I-70 to I-74 can be tricky; I use the Sam Jones Expressway.

While Olivia was here we took her to a ball game: Bradley vs. Texas-Arlington. BU fell behind 12-0 but rallied to take a 1 point lead…and ended up losing by 5. But they looked better than they did against a similar Delaware team earlier in the year.

Bradley being a 10 point underdog, plus a mild ice storm kept attendance down.

Olivia’s rabbit “Bucky” was a big hit with me:

Tracy liked Bucky too.

Workout notes: 4 mile walk on the treadmill yesterday: 50:36. 2 mile run on the Markin track today: 9:50/8:43 for 18:34 (lane 2). That second mile was work (4:24/4:19), though not all out.
