Michelle and I once again participated in the EFY race. We
showed up late decided to be extra socially distant. We still finished and even weren’t dead last. Though I’m still feeling stiff & sore from it.

It turns out the city was doing some work on the sewer line down the alley by our house. The hooked up a suction truck on one end of the alley and a camera truck on the other.
