Today was just the kind of run that I like if I have to run in the city.
I found a new paved trail, some new dirt trails, some new stairs, ran through a new (to me) neighborhood, went under and over I-5 and basically enjoyed myself. For sure part of the run was through some pretty sketchy sections of town... like the trail through The Jungle; but it was a nice day and I was already running and I'm a guy so I don't think about these things until after I'm done.
Running down Cheasty Blvd S was a blast! Back in the day I used to ride up for some big gear hill training and I never spotted the gravel path that runs along the entire length of the street. Today I was loving that path. For some reason it crosses the road two times but I wasn't fighting it. In fact, it sort of felt like I was in a toboggan run. Sort of. Except it wasn't cold. And I wasn't sliding. Other than that it was just like a toboggan.
I will need to do this route again.
My Garmin Fenix is 'in the shop' as they say and for a minute I figured today would be totally old school as in zero instrumentation. Then I remembered I had a wrist strap for my Garmin Edge 500! Whew... no gap in the stats. :)
This morning was COLD. Of course as soon as I started I realized I was overdressed. Oh well.
