Birthday Run - 4 miles - 6-8-2013

Birthday Run - 4 miles - 6-8-2013 - Details

This morning I celebrated my 58th birthday by taking a trip around the Gate, Belfort, Touchton loop. I caught up with 2 runners along the way so I slowed down long enough to invite them to the Jacksonville Running Companies Sunday morning group runs. The more the merrier right?

I know I had indicated in my post on Thursday that I would run an easy 3 this morning but when I got out there 4 seemed like the right number. Little did I know that a birthday card would arrive in the mail today from Shoeless Sonny in Carmel, IN requesting that I run an extra mile for him. Done.:)

I ended the week with 21.25 miles and maybe most importantly no aches or pains. I did get to the YMCA today and started learning my way around the place. It is very large and has an enormous amount of equipment. It is really very nice. I believe the facility is less than 10 years old.

Since tomorrow is long run day and my alarm is set for 5 AM I will head to bed early tonight.

Way to go!!! I like the map being a loop rather than out and back. It looks like the state of Ohio. Thanks for the extra mile!
