8.2 miles. Another Tuesday on the Blue Heron Bridge. For the second week in a row, we had the coolest morning of the week on a Tuesday and winds of 13 mph. I wore a Tracksmith merino wool long sleeve shirt and a lightweight short sleeve T in neon yellow over that, in an effort … Continue reading It’s chilly up there!
7mi. Like I haven't done this enough times to know, the Blue Heron Bridge works your run muscles well. I arrived begrudgingly at just before 5am, I was thankful to see Jen Q and Cody there. Jen Keys is still walking the hills, great for her, I expected her to already have delivered Baby #2. … Continue reading Taking care of the tender spots
8mi. First time in a long time I run the bridge the whole way. That's a mile of warmup, a mile of cooldown, and six miles of hills. It's cool out today, I run a few laps alone and a few with John Reback, before he peels off and does faster repeats with Matt K. … Continue reading An honest one
7 mi. A nice morning to gallop some hill miles, and others agreed! Kacie Herrick was there, Suzanne, Adrienne, Kylan, Steve and Mary, Paul and a few new folks I didn't know. Jen Keyes and Teresa were waiting for me when i arrived, so no warmup run. We ran their 5 laps, water every 2nd … Continue reading Off beat bridge workout
7.5 miles Today I had Jessica join in on the ritual of my weekly bridge run. We were second in the lot, only Paul's jeep was parked along the embankment of the bridge when we pulled in. We started the warmup mile and met Paul near the rest rooms, where we stopped, introduced each other … Continue reading Guest celeb!
7.5 mi. Charlotte's last showing at this run as a Florida resident is met with a slight breeze and no lights on the bridge at all. She wanted to run on the sidewalk, but I guess wanted someone to talk with even more so she stayed in the street. Walter departs for NZ today but … Continue reading Dark again?
8 mi. No relief from the breeze today, only a small amount of wind from the west helped make the climb west bearable. I ran with Walter who flies to Sydney after going home to shower, he will miss a few workouts next month due to Aussie and NZ trips. Paul stopped shortly after our … Continue reading Very hot hills
7.5 mi Took my time getting started, I ran only one lap around the parking lot with Walter before Chiara and Charlotte arrived ready to run. This was maybe the first time in a very long time that the four of us came to run the bridge together. It may be the last with Charlotte's … Continue reading Final Four
8 mi. I can't remember having the bathrooms locked before and after a Blue Heron Bridge run. The water fountain worked, but that's all. I ran with Charlotte and Chiara, who crept up the hills on the sidewalk then zipped past us on each downhill portion. Low attendance from others in the area. Teresa and … Continue reading No relief
8mi. There are no lights on the north side of the bridge where we run. Thankfully the construction is done on the north side so it's not a free for all with the traffic. Walter came after my first lap of warmup, and we ran 3 laps with John Reback. I wasn't as slow as … Continue reading I must like the mornings
