    It looks like my score is going to be about 1465 or so. Anyone beating that will get 25 points EC. Outstanding work everyone! If you look at our team impact, it’s pretty impressive. And this was only one month! Just think what would happen in a year?

    It was such a beautiful day, I wanted to just keep walking. I got 3 miles done, and realized that I really did have to get some work done, but it was glorious being out in the hot sunshine.
