After a wonderful first few days in England visiting Joanne’s family, I was finally settled in and time-adjusted enough to go on a run. (Now I see why professional triathletes fly to distant race sites a week beforehand.) We stayed out in the countryside north of London, and it was beautiful.  I ran along a curvy, hilly, two-lane road through fields of green soybeans and yellow canola flowers.

After I finished running, I wished I had more days to try out different routes, and I was definitely jealous of the cyclists I saw out enjoying the rare English sunshine.  It was a great trip overall—we took lots of pictures, especially of our day trip to Cambridge.
