1. Tuesday, 12th July
Surprisingly cool morning in lovely Watertown, SD. No curb when crossing Hwy 212 bridge across Willow Creek, made me feel a little queasy. Ran four straight lines in a square SE of the city.
2. Wednesday, 13th July
Meant to do some hills near the Big Sioux River and figured that I could reach it by way of 29th Str. SE.

|No crossing. Now I know why the road S of 20th Ave SE was closed.|

Redtail hawk being harassed by grackles, some killdeer and other birds and the beautiful landscape along the road and some good ol' country smells like pig manure ...

the nearest power pole is the Hampton Inn, my abode for the past two days.
Decided to run north of Hwy 212 today. It seemed hillier running around this quadrant. After I crossed the Willow Creek a bicycle/walking path branched off and led straight north. I decided to follow this path even though it was a shortcut from my planned route. I did not regret it. It started raining when I was about halfway through the run but the temperatures were much warmer than on the previous two mornings, almost uncomfortably so.
