This one is for the young people who challenge us to care for the planet. Special thanks to abby  and to Nicole whose examples and work and action suggestions encourage   me to be more involved.

Slow jog / walk. Morningside Gardens. For the first time in this new effort, more jogging than walking occurred. Hence the switch in order.
Strength work. Stretching. Gym at the Shire.
