Awareness of the outside world. The county-by-county election map is fascinating. Most states, red or blue, are blue dots in a sea of red.

Alas this year, no IRL New York for anyone. Double alas, they had a Virtual Abbott Dash to the Finish Line 5K, but they had it without me. Back when I was looking at races/walks for the second half of the year, all I found was a NYC 5k that was tied up with two other races. This mile on Fifth Avenue was the closest I could get.
The virtual Fifth Avenue mile was fun, as I have walked up and down most of that street over the years.
