At the end of this week a year ago, I'd skated 630.5 miles. This year so far, 627. If the forecast thunderstorms clear up in time, I'll pass last year's ghost tomorrow or Saturday. (I'd have passed him already if not for this week's rising heat and humidity.) We'll trade leads through early July, then I'll leave him behind for good when he takes two weeks off to shuttle my younger son back and forth to day camp.
Today: 13 miles. This year: 627 miles.
