    alright PBT to UMD tempo 7.5 mi 01:04 08:31 pace

  9. RUN
    good NCRR trail - Monkton station 16 mi 02:10 08:06 pace

    started cool(er) and humid, ended up hot and humid. But trail is 95% shaded, so that made it possible. Mostly flat, only about 500 feet elevation gain over the 8 miles out. Never ran that trail bef... read more
