2010-08-19 - Woodsy Trail

~5 miles @ ~9 min/mi

Sunbeams sparkle down through the misty air as I follow the loop through the urban forest near work, the morning after heavy rains. During the first lap I pause half a dozen times to move fallen branches and limbs off the path, so I don't trip over them in subsequent circuits. On the second go-around I kick twigs out of the way. The third time I'm cruising, and the final loop is as fast as I can plausibly go. Pace for the marked mile: 10.2 + 9.2 + 8.4 + 7.3 min/mi.
