Marine Drive Path Run


Did a training run on a section of the Marine Drive bike path. There are five sections to the Marine Drive path and the one I ran today is a quiet 2.6 mile part that doesn't have any designated parking, so it doesn't get used as much. It had been cloudy and dark all day, but dry. As soon as I started running it started to mist. Did the whole section for 5.2 miles and felt ok, so I did the first half mile again and back to make 6.2 miles(10K)in a time of 53:45 an 8:39 pace and the fastest 10K by 5 seconds since I started timing my runs. Of course it doesn't count as a personal best until I do it in a race, but I'm happy with it considering I've been working late since Saturday and have to keep working late until Monday. Friday I go to 2PM to 2AM shift for 3 days, hope I don't lose too much of my fitness level. (whine-whine)
Talked to my sister tonight and she said she reads my blog so- Hey Jennifer!
