7.9 on the 5th


Hope everyone had a great 4th. Our township had our local fireworks on the 3rd, so we lucked out with the weather.
When I got up on Saturday, I checked my emails, and missed a chance to run with Shoreturtle (Charlie) & his buds from the Trenton Runs Club. They where to meet at Washington Crossings Park, around 7:30am, hope they had a good run.
I went out and did a 7.9 mile run from our house to Mercer County Park, and back.
MCP, was getting ready for their big "Freedom Fest" activities. They had a great lineup of bands, and of course FIREWORKS! One of the bands that where scheduled to play, where The NERDS. If you ever get the chance to see them, do it! They put on a heck of a show. Our neighbor was having a party, otherwise, we would have taken the boys to see them.
Anyway.. I ran the 7.9 miles in 1:09:26 (8:48/mile). It was a good morning run, with only a few sprinkles.
Today, the 6th, I got up and did an early run before the wife & boys got up. I ran 5.76miles in 48:29 (8:26/mile).
That's back to back early morning runs. Maybe I am becoming a morning runner??!!

Nice runs. I prefer mid-morning runs, if only I didn't have to work.

The Nerds!! I haven't seen them in years.

Sounds like you had a great weekend!

Nice run, I've been a morning runner now for a few months, there's really nothing like it... Especially now in the heat.

Nice run! I kind of vary a lot with my time thing.. some months I am a morning runner, others a late evening runner. Whatever works best!

Thanks for stopping by.
