good Stone River Greenway MSD 15.17 mi 02:15 08:55 pace

Seized the opportunity this morning to head up into Nashville and jump on the Stone River Greenway. Started out at the Wave Park and did an out-and-back to Percy Priest Dam. Lots of variety on this course. There were sections of relative flat mixed in with plenty of rolling hills. Dialed back the pace on this run, and it was a good thing. The humidity was more than I'd hoped for, and one bottle of water wasn't enough. Never felt great, but nutrition the past few days probably had something to do with it.

If you're ever in the area I'd recommend this greenway. It's very well maintained and everyone using it was friendly and courteous. Every city should strive to have something like this for their citizens to recreate on, though it was pretty obvious it cost a lot. The entire thing was paved and there were numerous bridges and underpasses to cross the river or intersecting roads.

At one point I was greeted by a stray german shepherd. Two collars, but no tags. :( He ran with me for a minute, but was easily distracted by others. Not sure what it is about stray dogs lately. It's almost like they're tracking me down, as many as I've been seeing.

    Very nice easy run, Drew. I love searching out greenways to run when I travel places. Wish they were more abundant.

    Love running greenways, Huntsville/Madison have a few, and they are always well used. Nice Saturday run.
