Elephant Dreadmill

23 May

Well I don’t like dreadmills and neither does Maggie a 23 year-old African elephant who lives at the Anchorage Zoo. Her keepers built her this elephant dreadmill to help her get some training in for this summer’s road races. Here is the full story in the National Geographic.

Today is a run day for me but no dreadmill. It was a cold cold morning run, 48* ugh. Well I guess it is better than the 70* and humid weather that Naples is having. I ran through the Haverford campus and I’m amazed at the beautiful buildings and grounds. I wound up doing 7 miles. I’m going to try to swim at lunch time. This will be my first official Oldman at the Y swim.

    48* is NICE to run in! I’ll trade you, we’ve been 80* lately.
