First run since my 50-miler. I had rested my legs, only brief walks for a few days, then longer walks, up & down hills. When that felt completely fine, I decided to try an easy run. First up to Buena Vista Park where the poppies were in full bloom(1), then over to Corona Heights Park, where the clean air provided very clear views of downtown San Francisco, and across the bay to Oakland too(2)!

Finished my run with a coffee from Haight Street Market, where they had just changed store hours to close earlier for sanitizing, and limited the first hour of opening to those 60+ years old and Instacart workers(3).

Scanning the newspapers while waiting for my coffee, the day’s headlines captured only a few concerns & fears(4,5,6).

As a visual palate cleanser after those headlines, here’s my almond latte in a paper cup(7), since they stopped serving in reusable cups two days ago (tantek.com/t5661).
