Today's awesome walk, 6 miles in 1:55

I've had to work some weird hours in the last couple of days, but that
worked out nicely because it was extremely windy when I got up at my
normal time (4:10am) today. Glad I didn't have to head out in that.
Instead, I worked throughout the morning on a launch and then set out
on a nice afternoon walk. Having all the other people and traffic and
stuff definitely slows me down, but it's nice to be able to go to any
of the parks I want instead of having to go around them because
they're closed. And I really love that I live in a spot where I can do
a two-hour walk and see Volunteer Park, Interlaken Park, Marsh Island,
and the Arbortetum. This particular walk is also pretty challenging
due to elevation and stairs.
