Today I'm training in Coos Bay, Oregon.
8:17 am: I step out of the hotel room into a grey day of rain.
8: 33 am: The training room at the Boys & Girls Club is quiet and empty in the early, dawn light.
11:16 am: Tools of the trade -- my calendar, the Teen Leader's Guide, water, and lozenges for a scratchy throat.
1:45 pm: Students' attention is waning as we near our sixth hour of training.
3:18 pm: A moment of sunlight highlights a mural on a downtown building.
7:39 pm: Back at the hotel to sleep, wake, and repeat.
