2011-10-08 - Canal Towpath with Kabrena

~6 miles @ ~11.3 min/mi

Fog on the Clara Barton Parkway adds mystery and adventure to dawn this morning near the Potomac River. A woodchuck (groundhog?) humps across the road in front of me as I approach Carderock. My directions are incomplete and comrade Kabrena Rodda misses the turn; we confer on cellphone and she arrives still early. Along the C&O Canal towpath the trot upstream and back is a chance to catch up on family news. We admire the scenery, including two great blue herons, flocks of geese, ducks, etc. It's such a joy to run with a friend!
