I shuffled around with a KP map in my hands at Lexington Lake. It was fun. The temp was pretty warm (upper 70s) when I started, but the temp was falling and it was much more pleasant when I finished (maybe mid/upper 60s?).
I think this is going to be a regular head lamp running spot this winter.
running 50:00 
Trails at Lexington Lake. I think this will be a nice, but small, place to have some orienteering. The woods aren't too terrible. The trail network add some route choice options. The facilities - parking, restrooms, shelters - look decent.
running 2:35:00 
Trail run at Perry with a KP map that didn't include any trails. I read the map quite a bit, but also a bit roughly.
I kept the pace easy, but after 90 minutes started feeling a little tired and then after 2 hours concentration was hard. I'm going to struggle with the Possum Trot, but a couple more 90+ minute runs in the next few weeks should help.
After a warm and humid Saturday, a cold front went through and the temps were nice for running. It was about 50 when I started and maybe 60 when I finished. It really makes running a lot easier when the temps are reasonable.
I used the 2015 lidar for the KP map. The previous map used 2006 lidar. The new lidar vegetation is quite good.

Ran on the river trail (starting at Mud Creek) with Suzanne A. She's in town for a wedding.
I thought she was staying at the Eldridge Hotel both nights, so I was surprised when she asked me to pick her up at the Motel 6:
She's staying at the Eldridge tonight.
The run was good. Fun to chat and we made the mandatory stop to check out the level of water in the Kaw:
MTB cycling 1:00:00 
I decided to get out on the MTB and planned to go out to Clinton S.P. But, I heard some distant thunder and the lightning map web page looked like the storm would hit soon. So I just rolled around on West Campus where it'd be quick to get home if the storm hit.
