Day 19 - Shortest run yet
In fact, I had to throw in a little loop past my house and back at the end just to make my watch read over 3.1 miles. That's not to say it wasn't action-packed, though. Right after starting out, I had to make a little detour up a different block because the street I was going to take was completely blocked by fire trucks and ambulances. Then, coming down Sierra Street, I basically had to plow through a bush that was overgrowing the sidewalk when two cars were racing side-by-side and I couldn't step into the street. Cutting through Whitaker Park, I stepped into a depression that I didn't see and almost fell flat on my face (it was getting light by this point - I just wasn't paying attention to my feet.) And I think some bird with a strange call I hadn't hear was following me for most of the run.
Kind of a bizarre way to start the day, actually...
