This Run's For You
OK, Running Mom, since you're dedicating mile 8 of your run today to me, I decided to dedicate today's 1 1/2 mile run to you. It was a "heat wave" by Connecticut winter standards, meaning it was 40 degrees when I ran. Just to see different scenery, I went to another paved trail in Meriden, called the Meriden Linear Trail. It is about 3 miles or so from my home, and runs alongside a river. Since the trail was still covered with packed down snow, I ran in the snowmobile tracks, and as a result was very close to my podiatrist recommended 11 minute per mile pace. Total time was 16:28, or a 10:58 pace.
