4.5 mi. A quick out and back that started and ended in the dark. My hotel is nestled on a side street across from a very big hospital. I ran on concrete sidewalks out of that neighborhood and into the downtown area of London. There were a few areas of construction, added to the chopped … Continue reading London, Ontario Run #1
5 mi. I came not feeling 100% but knowing I have to get in the run groove. Low attendance, but I'm good with keeping my own pace since Erica doesn't come anymore. Ok, maybe I slack off in the last 50m... 1 mi warmup jog 800m w/200m recovery 400m w/200m recovery 600m w/200m recovery 200m … Continue reading Short work of the sprints.

Don't commit to calling Jessica in an hour and show up 2 hours later at the hotel. Question the advice of hotel concierge staff that cannot recommend a local running … Continue reading Circle Heathrow
7.5 mi Good bridge running and chatting with Jen Q and Jen K. Teresa is pregnant, so she doesn't come to the early run this morning. I hoped Suzanne would show up, but no go. Some of the laps are breezy going west, and stale coming back. The daylight savings thing has my entire run … Continue reading Doing the work
