21 mi. This was a much more humid day with less wind than last Saturday. I ran with Gary and Janine Peart to PGA and back after ticking off one DR bridge lap to Prosperity Farms Rd. Then I joined with Dave Capperelli for the 10.5 store to Inlet run. One more trip over the … Continue reading Another 21

20mi. Walter and I started at 4:35am, ran to Mac Arthur park and back to the store, then off with the group for the final 10.5 miles. I ran slowly, which is fine for this run, I needed miles. The beach was very nice with organized sets of waves, so I recommended to John that … Continue reading A 20 per month is good.
