2010-10-29 - Camo Leafy Loops

~5 miles @ ~9 min/mi

It's hard to see the pavement of the jogging path through brown-and-yellow autumn leaves that lie scattered thickly on it this morning, and for the first half lap I have to tread cautiously. Then there's a clear stretch of asphalt, followed by a final quarter of dry pine needles. The second time around my eyes somehow get tuned in and can see through the camouflage a bit. I manage not to slip on occasional twigs and pine cones. Accelerating the pace gives miles of 9:45 + 8:50 + 8:06 + 7:30 on the measured segment.
