Do better, Peoria

Troubling COVID stat: 193 new cases in the past 24 hours, and our population (county) is 179,000. More than 1 out of every 1000 residents got COVID in a single day. That is greater that 324,000 cases in a day for the US (yes, I know, not exactly comparable but still)

In other news: our Mayoral election:

According to the Journal Star, there are about 675 mail in ballots still out…and these get counted until April 20 (if postmarked on time). If Ali wins these by 12 percent, as she did the current mail in votes, she would gain 81 votes, enough to win…by…8 votes.

Let’s just say, I have no idea.


Middle mile was under 13; I did have some tightness at the end and a mild ache, but it was less painful than Monday or Sunday.

And the pace was decent.
