Still a little sick.  Stayed home from church yesterday, which was a bummer.  I love church.  Got a priesthood blessing of health from my home teacher.  He's a great guy.  I visited one of my sites this morning, a few miles from my house.  I wanted to walk the watershed, but there was a gated community.  I guess I'll have to rely on aerial photography.  Probably got about 2 miles.  Maybe a little more.

RWCD is in their "low-flow" period, also known as "dry-up."  They used to completely dry up the canal once a year to perform maintenance on it.  Now that there's fish in it, they can't dry it out anymore.  But they still have to do the maintenance.  I'll saw one zanjero in the canal wearing a pair of waders tacking on a depth gage.  His fat lead was on the catwalk telling him what to do.  That's the pecking order at RWCD.  Zanjeros are the lowest of the low.

Who uses more than 30 GB of data in 20 days????  Apparently the people on my plan!!  Grr!  Well, I decided not to use Runkeeper because I'm afraid it uses data to track my run.  I don't know for sure.  Maybe some of you tech savvy people can tell me.  So I just ran the same route as last time and used the stop watch on my phone.  I finished my run just before noon and I hadn't had any breakfast, so I was pretty much done.  I was running along the canal and I was noticing a bunch of tennis balls and pine cones in the water.  So I started counting to see which one would have more.  It was 3 to 3 when I started.  It ended up being 20 pine cones, 3 tennis balls.
