Only ran once this week but did 2.1 miles again

Our granddaughter, Kristen, is visiting with us, and the three of us went to the Jordan River Parkway about 9:45 am and went north from the parking lot. The run was uneventful. I saw one skater pushing a baby cart and several runners. I saw several walkers including two walkers who congratulated me on being active in my old age. I told them my goal was to reach 100 and still be active and that I had 21 years to go. They said they wanted to be active in their old age, and I, jokingly, said we could hold hands and cross the finish line together when I turn 100. I took one short break on the bench at the south end of the Sandy golf course (on my way back); the break was at a distance of about 1.1 miles. I drank about 1-3/4 cups of water; I poured the remaining water (plus another 1/2 cup) on my head after I finished the run. I was sweating, and the water running down my head felt great!

The following picture was taken from the web.
