      We saw a turtle, too!! Nice miles. Too bad none of your girl posse wants trails - resorting to picking up other ladies.

    It was 56°F outside this morning, and that is the perfect temperature for an early meet up with David S. and Matt B. Matt had 4 miles, so we made a quick half-loop of the park and then over to Flo... read more

      Love this! I'm so glad you said yes to this.... I would do this with my dad (though he only jogged around our neighborhood and I doubt it was more than a mile!) and those are some of my most cherished memories when I had him all to myself!

      Great job at finding that extra motivation in people and things around you. I play that game to, but usually with things in front of me that I try to catch. Nice run.

    Some slow, early morning miles with David S. to get the day started. This was another one of those 8-milers that just clicked on by as if it were a 5K. Gotta love those!

    I went out just as the sun was going down tonight. It was a little overcast, breezy and the humidity had tapered off a bit. Overall not a bad run and very enjoyable.
