Today was great – good trail (The Montour Trail and the GAP), only a few trail-breaks on road and some ok running from both Mike and I – we ran together all day and it was a ‘steady’ day. The morning started misty and I was actually chilly for the first time in ages, it warmed up to high 80s but was a less humid day so rather pleasant. The route went through a pretty industrial area of South Pittsburgh, yet in some places there were deer, woods all around and a real sense of being in the countryside. John, Pat and Carl managed to find their way to us in the many trail carparks and road intersections sowe were well crewed yet again!
Here’s some photos that Pat’s taken of the route and interesting things we run past:
This evening we went to ‘Boston Market’ which is a new fast food chain for me – and I liked it. I had chicken, which was good, but the vegetable sides were excellent – especially the sweet potato mash with brown sugar and cinnamon on top, I’ll be trying that at home!
I’m on the radio again shortly – ‘Up All Night’ again on BBC 5Live; at 2:45am UK time, 9:45am Eastern US Time (which is just after my bedtime but luckily I’m not too tired tonight).
