Gorgeous Day for a 12 Mile Workout
Today dawned as a gorgeous day for this time of year in Eastern Virginia. The temperature was about 58 at the start of training at 6:30. Starting a half hour later was really nice, too. We still got there early enough to see a nice sunrise over Boat Lake in Byrd Park.
After today, I only have one more long mileage training day before the Crawlin' Crab Half Marathon. This is hard to believe. But anyhow, I wanted to get in a good workout today, going 12 miles. My friend Lelia came out and walked with me. She is also going to the race, just not with Team in Training. Our route was two file mile loops through Windsor Farms, with its beautiful homes, like this pink house:just like last week, of some of the detail around the Maury statue.
