My High Mileage Week: 45 Miles of Running!
I was able to run on the shaded park road today. It was a nice change for today's 10 mile run. It has been closed for a long time because of flooding from a creek. Here's one of the ducks that keeps me company when I'm at the park. This week, I also saw a opossum running along one of the streets near my house. After that, I ran in a different area in case it woke up on the wrong side of the road that day.
