This has already been an interesting project as I get to discover so many new things that are amazingly close to home.  Today I notes the stunning views north from the north end of Stonehedge Drive.

As the crow flies Jefferson Heights is about 2 miles from home, yet I don’t recall ever being in the southern reaches of the streets there.

Even though I ran in the late morning, it was another sauna run.  77° on departure and 82° on return.

Hot hills ruled the day.  If my feet were pounding on a downhill, my heart was pounding for an uphill.

Another scorcher too, today it was 83° during the late afternoon run.

Between the hills and hot pavement I got an unusual (for me) blister on a big toe.  I’ll need to switch to alternate shoes for next run.

Yet another beautiful day for a run: 60’ish, low humidity, and bright blue skies.

Running downtown, while not the best, will be okay.  Just need to be ever vigilant for drivers pulling out, car doors and kids intercepting my path and irregular surfaces and objects under foot.  Urban running 101.

Today was the first time I ran any of the strip shopping area.  While probably not as hazardous as the downtown, it will surely prove to be less enjoyable with the trash, traffic fumes and people wrapped (rapt?) in their automobiles.
