The temp was about 65 F. The dewpoint was about the same. My glasses fogged up repeatedly.
Total run was 8.5 miles + an additional half mile cool down.
My electrolyte was Peach-Mango-Lemonaid. Yum!
I saw 4 vehicles, two other joggers !!!!! and a bicycle rider.
I uploaded a very short video clip because photos cannot do running water justice.
My run took me across three streams. This is the prettiest sounding one.
|I think that is water cress growing under those dead branches.|
|Main branch of the Thornapple river. The water is about 18 inches deep.|
|Turn around point. The Eaton Township Hall.|
One advantage of running an out-and-back is you can stash your electrolyte bottles and lighten your load quickly on the way out. If you have not guessed, I treat long runs as a series of 3 mile runs.
