7.5 miles. Hood route to Legacy Trail and Back. 6 am Start. Very Smooth. This gives me hope for Saturday.
I actually met another runner on Laurel Road, and ran with him for @ 3/4 mile. He's on vacation, visiting his brother, from Ohio. He says he's training for a marathon in Xenia, OH. He says the race costs $35. I said $35!? He said yes. This interesting back and forth about the price of the race in Xenia lasted about 1/4 mile. Then I had to turn around. I'm sure he will run a different route for the rest of his vacation, so he doesn't have to talk to the guy obsessed with the $35 race again.
