It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood
You never know what you will run into. Literally run into. Today, I ran into one thing I knew about and one thing I didn't know about.
1. Girls on the Run is coming to Rhode Island. They had their first fun run on the path where I usually run. I am going to have to look into it.
2. The farmers market is back! It runs year-round in two locations. Nov-May is in an old mill. June-Oct is in a park walking distance from my house. So this weekend was the first market back in the park. I am drooling thinking about squash, zucchini, tomatoes, and corn later in the summer.
My run went sooooo much better than last weekend. It was much cooler and not humid. I didn't have to stop, except briefly to let bikers cross a pedestrian bridge. Then I cooled down, showered, and walked to the farmers market. Brought my big canvas tote bag and a homemade iced coffee. Didn't need much. Bought some rainbow chard. Stopped for a mango lassi at an Indian restaurant for my walk home.

The fountain in the park was rededicated and turned on today for the first time in 29 years. I caught the rededication ceremony.
