I ran a very enjoyable half marathon length route around my town this morning. I mapped out the route on google and knew the ball park length but was very surprised when it turned out to be almost exactly 13.1 miles.



The temps were nice and cool, finally and I felt good running that distance. The course had a lot of little ups and downs, but I don't think that can really be avoided around here.

Looking forward to running that length in competition in October

2:05 you slowed down.   Wink  Yesterday was a great day for it.  Its amazing when you take that 13 miles or whatever you run and put it in a straight line to see how far you really went.  That would be like you running to Sandy Hook if they let you run on 84.

yeah I went nice and slow with no one to push me- it was nice- I loaded two episodes of cartalk on my mp3 and just enjoyed the morning more or less. Well, the last third started to hurt a little but not too bad.

I'll have to try running on 84 and see how far I get before I get arrested! I hate running on busy roads though- some drivers have no courtesy for pedestrians/runners. It's downright scary when cars are going 50-60mph and don't move over at all or slow down even the slightest.
