Reflections and sightings from [almost] daily jogging at dawn

Sunrise 6:16 am: A case of grass is greener?

The Dawn Joggers were greeted this morning by about three dozen adolescent cattle immediately adjacent to the Piers Lane gate into the Big Dish area of Stanford land. Neither of them could remember seeing cattle in this area of the Dish before, a fact that may or may not have anything to do with the last cattle rancher's retirement in August. (The long time leaseholder grazed his horses in this area, which is next to the old ranch house.) As the DJs rounded the bend and proceeded up the first hill, the rest of the herd came into view, all clumped next to the cattle grate with wistful eyes fixed on their brethren on the other side.

Note: Male DJ decided to find the number of paces from home to Dish and back today - recorded at 12,675.

12,675 paces to cover 6.3 miles = 2,012 paces per mile which works out to 2.6 feet per step. Important data... now I can set the pedometer to (hopefully) more accurately record distance jogged.
