I had to get out and do a 8 mile run, and was trying to think of a decent course to run.
I like just leaving from home, instead of driving somewhere and running, ect..
I don't want my running to take time away from working around the house, and playing with the boys. My runs lately have been on the same roads, and I wanted to do something different. This is where having the Forerunner 405 pays off! If I didn't have this tool, I would have no idea how far I was running, since I thought of this run on the fly.
I ran to MCP, and did part of the Run For Dad 5k loop around the lake.
The Forerunner worked like a champ in the wooded part. This thing is awesome! If you are into running, this is the tool you must have!
It was fun to get a different route down, not knowing where I was going to end up. I had an idea of where I wanted to run.
I need to start to run with a camera, and take pictures of some of the things I see. Nobody does a better job of taking pictures & running than good ole Shoreturtle! Check out his blog, he does a great job with adding photos.
MCP has a ton of wildlife, and during this run, I ran right up on some deer. I got less than a few feet from them before they took off.
I saw some trails I want to explore, and will try them out in the upcoming weeks.
It was a nice comfortable nite to run. We sure have been lucky this last month with the humidity!
My time was 1:12:17 (8:57/Mile)
