At the University of Maryland to pick up daughter Gray on Sunday afternoon there's only time for a quick jaunt along Paint Branch Trail from milepost 1.5 to Cherry Hill Rd and back. I try to start slow and accelerate. The result are splits, according to the half-integer markers, of 8:53 + 8:33 + 7:52 + 7:23 with a 4:15 fraction in the middle. The cold front that came through yesterday provides 60°F comfort and I successfully dodge most of the puddles on the pathway.
