4.3 miles turned into 6.3 along the country roads and pasture fields of Piney Flats. Oh and along the four lane split HWY 11E....








because I got lost...








Twice.
lol

9 miles today. beat my previous time on this trail by almost 30 minutes and I was running in the snow and not really pushing myself. pretty stoked.

side note - someone hauled two living room chairs 4.5 miles up a mountain on the AT and set them up at a rock overlook. they hung one from a tree branch so it's a swing. That's what I call determination.

in my defense, I don't live here, never did, just staying with a friend this weekend.

I missed one turn from the mapmyrun map I designed had to work my way back. Winding up on a 4 lane HWY scared the crap of me. There was tons of shoulder room to run on, but I definitely was very uncomfortable.

For the second time being lost, I blame a very poorly designed neighborhood. That's my story and I'm sti-sticking to it.

Ran the Wanderer's Trail Race today. Did a lot better than I was expecting. I was shooting for 37 or 38 minutes, I think I came in at 34:43. Felt like dying at the end but that was a blast.

Ran it with a couple guys from work, one of them got 2nd, hah. He's quite a bit faster than me.

Weekly Total: 17.32 Miles

I'll be out of town for work this week starting tomorrow, I'll probably be running mostly on the treadmill until I get back.

3.5 tonight but forgot my phone so I have no idea how long it took. It felt fast but that doesn't mean anything.

Edit: Total of 7 for the week. Hoping to get over 13 for the week. Should be able to hit that goal as long as the weather stays decent this afternoon and Saturday.
