Fit To Ride
Awareness of the outside world. Monday was MLK Day of Service. I didn’t. In my defense, bad weather was predicted for that weekend. But mostly I dropped the ball. Vow to do better next year.

As before. Walk. Drums. Awesome. [Strolling To A Soundtrack]
The most masked activity I have been to yet, despite being outside. Spotted my first N95 in the wild. Some folks walked with masks. As with previous IRL walk, I wore mine in the – very loose- crowds at the start and finish. During the walk itself, I removed them and then made sure I stayed at least 10 feet from another person. I do have N95s to wear. I’m saving the fancy masks for indoor situations that I can’t avoid. My reading of the charts says cloth + surgical works well enough for outside. [Magic City 5K 2021]
