2016-05-14 - Washington, Baltimore and Annapolis Trail with Kerry

~5.4 miles @ ~10.6 min/mi

http://zhurnaly.com/images/Washington_Baltimore_and_Annapolis_Trail_restroom.jpg"One rabbit, one rider, one runner!" Kerry and I have the WB&A Trail almost to ourselves from milepost 0 to 2.5 this afternoon. The wide and well-surfaced path runs northeast through woods along what was once (1908-1935) the Washington, Baltimore & Annapolis Electric Railway in Prince George's County of Maryland. We push the pace between mileposts 1 and 2 and make it in 8:31. Then: "Did you just feel a raindrop?" Oops ...

Temps drop 20 degrees in 20 minutes as a cold front rolls through, bringing sudden showers and gusty winds. At the parking lot on Electric Avenue near Glenn Dale Road restroom facilities seem rather primitive. Kerry treats me to coffee and gets back to her daughter's basketball tournament almost on time.
