8 mile run (56:00)
Melanie and I drove out to the NCR trail, which is about 15mins north of Baltimore. She told me it was an unpaved surface and a nice run. The nice run part was correct bu the surface was a weird combo of crushed limestone and pavement. It was certainly better than the concrete and brick ghetto sidewalks of Baltimore but not exactly the plush carpet I was looking for. Both Melanie and I didn't feel all that hot but the pace stayed brisk nonetheless. At 50mins we had returned to the parking lot and I dropped Melanie off and ran the last 6mins petty hard just to tack on some time and get the legs a little stretched out. It didn't really feel all that great but worth the effort.
