Two Pax joined Bald Eagle for a Conversation Pace 3.35 mile run across the bridges of GR. The 2 pax indicated it was one of those tougher mornings to roll out of bed, but I was grateful they did. No land speed records were set, but it was a beautiful morning for exercise.

The image shows our route, we beelined to the blue bridge and then crossed the bridges back before finishing with a trip up the stairs where we saw what appeared to be an early morning running date started. Gravy gave a solid Flying EH pitch, but the prospect seemed more interested in the lady joining him for an early workout.

Really good conversation about how to maintain mental health in the midst of the uncertainty of the pandemic was had. The CoT centered around 3 questions – What are you grateful for? What are you scared of/nervous about? And what lies do you tell yourself that are stuck in your head.
