Staying with it

Woke up later, again (6:30 ish). Still out the door by 9:15 or so and I got in 4 loops of the 1.77 mile course; I was just in a weird mood. 16:30 ish pace; not much pain (no NSAIDS) and it was perfect after yesterday’s harder 8.3 miler.

Glorious weather.

Yes, there were protests in the area and unfortunately, SOME looting (much more protest than looting). I just hope that the protesters realize that COVID19 doesn’t care about their cause and is killing far more people than rogue police.

About the protesters vs. rioters/looters: it is complicated.

Yes, I’ve seen black rioters looting and beating people up; I’ve seen white rioters doing the same while black protesters are yelling at them to stop. I’ve seen black protesters protecting police officers.

and I’ve seen protesters practicing good social distancing.

There really isn’t a THEY as in “THEY ARE”; lots of stuff happening and many different types of people are involved; many (most?) are good, and a few are truly awful:
