Standard fartlek

Yeah, it is fun to say. One of the benefits of being a runner, really.

So I did a nice easy 3-mile loop this morning, trying to keep it slow. There's one part of my 3-mile loop, though, that I always do a little sprint on. Not sure why I started doing it, but it's kind of in the spirit of fartlek - "speed play." There's a stop sign on a cross street at the top of a little hill, and I just go all out to it, then recover on the flat section beyond. This is the view from the bottom of the little hill.

What street is that? Putnum? Why don't I recognize that street? Weird.
