It could not have been any wetter (or colder) this morning at Green Lake. At 8:30, there were less than one hundred brave souls dripping their way around the water. I did a fast mile and quit. I've trained twice this week with Amy, and know that I'll be walking every morning now for the next week or so, since I'm on vacation. Now it's time to wrap some presents and then go hear Leroy and his Ravenna Brass Ensemble (featured in a photo in today's Seattle Times ) play this afternoon at the University Book Store.
