Flowers for Sally

I wanted a 15 mile run, but had trouble planning a route for that distance. So I wrote down 11, 13 and 17 mile routes. I picked up Sally at 7:30am and we were off.

The Thurman Bridge was closed for [belated] repairs, so we started at Birch on NW 53rd. When we got down to Leif, we decided to go to the porta-potties about three-quarters of a mile away-- adding an additional mile and a half. Perfect! It added on just enough to bring us just about to the original mileage I wanted.

Sally laughed when I stopped to take photos of flowers, but she didn't mind the breaks too much-- despite being up for such a long run, she's only done double digits a few times. She's just a beast! Here's to a lovely spring run, without the rain.

Walk up Birch for a .22mi cool down.
