I went running again this morning, and did 10k without effort. Maybe the air of Valparaiso is helping?
I made friend with a dog who followed me for a good part of it, back and forth, and protected him from the other dogs on which territories we trespassed.
On the way back, the sea lions had invested a structure that I had observed before. Some were very obviously playing, climbing the structure to jump again in the water.
A very good morning run indeed!
