For some reason, I tend to run out-and-back routes. Those out-and-backs require fewer navigational skills or mathematical time/distance calculations. You leave the house, go for a certain amount of time/distance...Then, you turn around to head back home, and---Voila!---your time/distance has doubled AND you're right back where you started :)
Well, today I ran a terrific loop that took me up Moraga Avenue, past Piedmont Park, and then down Mandana. The end of my run included cruising down Lakeshore and back around to Grand Avenue. My calypsos treated me well on the uphills and downhills, and I absorbed plenty of bright and crisp morning air! This run has inspired me to develop some more looping routes- yay!
