15 miles. This was my first visit to the Stuart/Jensen Beach bridges on foot. I've been there many times on a bike, I know the hills are good for that training. Kaitlyn met me at the Sailfish Cafe. The weather was great, barely a breeze and 55 degrees. We ran east and in less than … Continue reading Stuart’s hills
8.2 mi. Today was supposed to be a rest day. Business travel has me in Southern Virginia and here is an opportunity to run in the daylight, on a trail with rolling hills.

Except for the wind, the 73 degree morning, and the clouds zipping by overhead. The weather report said about 11-13 mph breeze, … Continue reading It’s lonely at the top.
