Details: I lost track of this daily tracker thing, which is fine. I've still been running daily, though. Mostly just cruising the same 3.5/6/7/8 mile route each day, although one night I did run in my backyard for 11 minutes in the pouring rain after a day with the family, just to avoid losing the streak.

Anyway, I saw a turtle on my run this day. He was in the grass, nowhere near a body of water. I ran by him around 2 miles into my run and just kinda looked around bewildered. I kept on my normal route though. On my return, he was still there, only a few inches further into the grass.

I don't know what came over me, but I kneeled down and said a little prayer of sorts for him. I don't remember verbatim, but it was something very much like "we are both weary travelers, stay safe."

Maybe it was more a prayer for myself. I hope that little guy made it.
