Long-ish


My long run this week was supposed to be 10 miles, but I ended up going 11.5. I actually had thought I'd go about 15, but just wanted to get home at the turnaround point.

I did basically the route of the Reno Rock-n-River half marathon, but came back along 4th street instead of retracing my steps along the south side of the Truckee River. Nice, though - I was running back toward the rising sun, and had a beautiful view of a really pretty sunrise.

Other events - scared a deer out from under the Mayberry Bridge while it was still pretty dark. Scared me as much as it, I think. And ran by one of the coolest houses in Reno, for sale. Anyone got a spare 989,000 they'd like to let me have?


Huh - I wonder what those three pace spikes sere right in the middle of the run?


My mile split times were pretty good, though...

That house does sound really nice, although I don't think I'd want to clean 6 bathrooms! Although if I could afford that house, I'd probably get a house cleaner to do it for me...

This looks like an awesome run, and your average speeds were very steady. Maybe I'll run 11.5 miles tomorrow morning. yeah right. :)
