Nice guy at the local shop. He said my left tail light was a little dim so I needed to clean the inside of the lens (fair), and passed me.

Another 10k race morning, this time down by NASA. The run is a neat one - called Yuri’s Run celebrating the first human in space. The course winds through the neighborhood where many current and former astronauts live, and they have signs out front with names and missions.
