Good run in the late afternoon after a wonderful day at Tobacco Road. Just running the roads from where we are staying, but I decided I should simulate Valley Forge conditions a little more, so I ran a yard or two off the pavement all the way. Footing was a little bumpy and a little tilted and certainly softer, but not too much trash. My route
. I doubt that I simulated one aspect of VF and that was the weather. It was 72 and sunny, no wind. If we get that, I imagine everyone will be complaining about the heat.
I was glad I took a look at the satellite photo on Google Maps before I left, and not just the road map, as they are building a bypass, and the road I was planning on taking over to get a brief view of the Sanford CC took a substantial detour. The plus side was that I got in an 80-minute run and not just an hour. And the legs still had something left at the end.
41:26 out, 38:36 back, working harder coming back as I'd told Gail I'd be back by 5. I believe it was 5:01 when I returned.
