How does one define 'on time'? Early enough to walk to Woodside. I was out the door before 8:30. Granted, services start at Woodside at 8:30, but that was good enough for me. I got there before the morning Shema, and was invited to lunch at the Feld's.
By the time I was done eating, I had succeeded in cooling off from the morning's jaunt. Yes, it's that warm in Maryland, at least to me. I decided that I didn't want to impose on their hospitality (as well as several other good reasons, like wanting medication and wanting to see if I could make the trip back) so I left a little after 3pm. They graciously equipped me with a liter of ice water, which was a good thing.
Total distance? About 5 miles. I'm a little sore in places, but overall, it was a good thing. :)
