My first downtown run!











I ran 4.21 miles ... I was only supposed to do 4.  I was supposed to warm up on the first, run two at 10:44, and then cool down on the last.  Unfortunately I ran the first mile in 10:47, the second at 9:45, the third at 10:20, and the last one 10:27!  Then I sorta cooled down at 10:18.

I guess I was a little hyper!  Lots of runners, inline skaters, and walkers.  Plus, did I mention I showered afterwards.  Right in my own office building!  I left everyone's shoes alone today.  I feel so absolutely awesome today!

Good for you....I get in about 4km's walking at work during coffee breaks. 1 km around the building 4 times a day does wonders for your mental state.

Very cool! A lunchtime run and showering at work is a nice perk to have available.

it's all about pace said...

having a shower in your office building rocks! splashing off in the handicapped stall... not so much...

Looks like such a wonderful place to run. No wonder you could not stop yourself.
Cool pics.

We may have crossed paths today, 'cuz I saw that tree sign on my Lakeshore run today - sometime between 10am and 11.

Looks like a great setting for a run. Nothing wrong with a little extra distance (or extra dessert, or extra beer, or ....). Good work sir.

I went out today for an easy 5, and "took a wrong turn", and ended up at 6. Funny, my iPod was set for 6 too. Hmmm.

Let's bottle up this day and keep it alive forever, especially on Sunday.

Very pretty area to run!

That's beautiful! If I had access to scenery like that I'd be making my runs longer, too!
