It was so difficult running in the city because I had to stop nearly every 2 blocks due to cars, and the streets were so crowded that it was hard moving. Still it was great seeing all of the historic sites as I ran by. I ran to Elfreths Alley, the oldest residential street in America. Also, I ate a really good Philly cheesesteak after my run, so that was eventful.&nbsp;</p> Tue, 12 Jun 2018 06:00:00 Fri, Jun 08, 2018 <p>85 minutes 5A.M.</p> <p>It&rsquo;s been a rough week for running because of the trip but today was great. I went and did a nice long roun in Hanover, Pennsylvania. It&rsquo;s beautiful here-lots of green stuff, old churches, and colonial houses. Plus, fantastic BBQ and thick ice cream. My only complaint is the humidity. It looks like I hopped in the shower every time I walk outside. I miss the dry heat but for now the food and scenery will suffice for a nice trade off. We&rsquo;re off to Gettysburg &amp; Philadelphia tomorrow (Monday). Also finished Desert Solitaire. It&rsquo;s a fantastic book. I would highly recommend it.&nbsp;</p> Fri, 08 Jun 2018 06:00:00 Mon, May 21, 2018 <p>Went for an hour run today. It felt pretty solid. It was one of those runs where you just feel like pushing the pace a bit, so I stayed under 7s for the first 6 miles. After that I chilled out a bit. The route I took went over the&nbsp;boulevard,&nbsp;down to the college, &nbsp;back through 700, and then I hit the river trail for the rest of my run.&nbsp;</p> Mon, 21 May 2018 06:00:00
