Dismal Swamp Canal Trail 10.07 mi 01:17 07:41 pace

Nice run at the Dismal Swamp Canal Trail. I guess the wind, rain, and cool temps kept everyone else away. There was only one other person out there, and he was running in as I was running out at the 3 mile marker. He was dressed like Jim Cantore from the Weather Channel for a hurricane, while all I had on was a hat, shorts, and shoes. Of course, he also had a massive hydration backpack on while I had nothing. I run with my mouth open so the rain hydrated me. It was nice not focusing on any pace, and just letting the mind wander. It was also really cool being the only one out there and having the whole trail to myself. Thought about doing some practice for my June race. One more easy recovery week before training starts again.

    @Ty, it is an old closed road through the swamp so it's not a real trail. @Hollie, my race in June is a nudist 5k to celebrate the run streak I'm on. Streak for the streak.

    Wow. I think I would get spooked out being out there alone.

    Did you catch any bugs while your mouth is open, Greg? I accidentally ate a bug once there at Dismal Swamp. Nice 10 miler, Greg!

    @Raphael, I eat bugs all the time. I don't mind unless they get caught on my throat. @Sunnee, let's just say I'm glad there's not any cameras out there!

    Never ever run with your mouth open at the DST, lol! Unless you have an alternative nutrition plan... Nice work in the rain!
