No turtle today

I think I forgot to mention why the title said turtle yesterday. I'm not sure if it was the steamy conditions that brought him out but a turtle had crawled out of the pond area at the end of Sydney R. Marovitz golf course. He was about 12 inches wide and by my second lap had attracted the attention of three passers by.
Today the turtle had gone and I wonder if it was an omen since I finished the 3 mile route in 23:11, my fastest yet. The run felt great and most of the humidity is down to 65% at 64 degrees so it wasn't at all uncomfortable.
I hope the turtle crawled back of his own accord and that I can keep up the pace of today!
