First Long Run of 2009

After church today I put in my first long run of the season. It’s only ten miles, but I have to start somewhere. Jeannie and Peter met me along the course on the canal path. Peter rode his bike beside me for a half-mile and on my return, Jeannie provided me with gu and water. That was nice since it was pretty hot and I started my run at 12:30 in the afternoon.

Long run; out and back from home, along Olden ave., Parkway ave., Lower Ferry rd., and the D&R canal path (technically the feeder canal).
10 miles.
Mile 1: 7:51
Mile 2: 7:52
Mile 3: 8:40 – stopped to put Pete’s chain back on his bike 🙂
