Oh What A Beautiful Run

Distance: 4.1 miles
Time: 51.15 min.
Pace: 12:29 mile
Time of day: 10 a.m.
Weather: 50ish, overcast, but no wind.

It was a great run today! I ran a trail I had never been on before. I think sometimes I don't run because I get bored. I tend to run the same route day in and day out. But today I ran a trail in a neighborhood park that I've not run before. I have walked part of the trail, but that was a couple of years ago before I started running.

The trail is flat. I mean flat. The graph in Runmeter that shows elevation is a perfectly straight line. No ups, no downs, no incline. Flat. The trail is located close enough to the Mississippi River that it is in a flood plain. So that sounds really boring, but it's not. I ran through some woods and observed big, gorgeous houses up on the bluff. The train tracks run right by the trail so I saw a couple of trains rumble by. It is a circle trail a little over 4 miles long. Plus there is a short side trail maybe another 1 mile. I will definitely run this trail again.

It was a great run!
