I was on the path about 9 am to enjoy the shade and high 60 (F) temps. When I finished the cadets from the police academy were just starting a timed run. I talked with the Sgt. who was conducting the run to find out when the cadets use the Parkway for their timed runs (2nd Thursday about 11 am). One thing nice about increasing my distance. I not only am getting used to the new distance, I'm also getting even more used to the smaller distances that I pass as I go toward the new distance, and I'm getting used to what ever ratio of running and walking that I use.
I saw several quail, including several small babies. This is the first time I've seen this year small babies.
