11 mi. The summer suffocating humidity is here, a month before the solar recognition of the season change. Johan's Joes, WPB I ran with Daniel and Maureen on the WPB/ Palm Beach long run route. This was Daniel's first time, now he knows the way. He is doing the Hanson's Marathon Method for the Green … Continue reading Palm Beach summers
5mi. There will be a time when I can't run on a private track, shower on premise, and walk barefoot across perfectly manicured fairway-grade lawn to stretch out my toes. But that's not today!
