I ran a 4.5 mile, out-and-back route. It is 5 miles from our house to our Parish. So I walked the first .5 mile to warm up and then ran the rest. I ran it very slowly. My heart rate was barely elevated. I plan to make this downtown run my long, Saturday run as my miles go up. There is so much to look at! And to smell.... There is a bakery on the square.... I could smell doughnuts for half my run!! Peace out!

Good Morning Run
My run today was great! What a beautiful day it is! It was 65 degrees when I hit the road. I ran a long run through downtown Troy and back. I love going downtown but have never been down there on a Saturday morning. Things were busy. People were opening up their shops, walking to work, the fountain was running. It was a lovely scene. I really enjoyed it. Recently "Ohio Magazine" named Troy one of the 5 best hometowns in Ohio. (Check out article here.) I can't say that I am surprised. Since we've moved her we've enjoyed the people, atmosphere, and culture so much. It is an active little town, w/ lots to do, and really nice citizens.
