A Two Bridge Lunch (3.87 miles)

Weekday Trip to Gym Park (6.6 miles)

After my very disappointing run yesterday, today’s great runs were exactly what I needed. (I’ve decided to split to/from Gym Park into two runs, at least for my record keeping — two, sub thirty minute runs divided up by two … Continue reading
