I decided to take a different route, other than the Ethanol Loop, and wanted a little longer run today so we ran to Ellsworth.  Everyone decided they needed a potty stop so we went to Kum n Go for a brief rest.  We also stopped to see where a family member moved to.  While stopped, a kitty came up to Rachael and she liked it and was petting it.

The run back home was a little more difficult.  This route has some long, climbing hills.  Once we got back to town we finished up the 8 miles and yet another curious kitty came up to Rachael.  I really wanted to keep going.  I don't think a marathon was in the cards today, but easily a half was doable.

Steubenville has been a good trip for me and I have been more pensive.  This has made me rethink what my "false gods" are that I have been "worshipping".   It has been so self-lifting to not be on facebook, twitter, and other connections to the real world.  This really makes me want to quit my job and follow my real passion, ie lean in a different direction.  Unfortunately, it is also my necessary evil.  In the meantime I will continue to slowly lean that direction until life slows down.
