2015-09-14 - Buongiorno Kerry

~11.7 miles @ ~13.3 min/mi

"Back-to-School Run!" Kristin names today's trek, a venture that starts in the dark on a cool crisp fall-like morning. Kerry has just returned from Italy, and on her internal clock it's 10am. After a warm-up lap around McLean HS track we head east toward Venus. On Franklin Park Rd a weird creche, occupied by two human-sized statues of crows, stands beside a spooky-looking house that we all agree looks like it belongs in the wilderness, guarded by a shotgun-totin' tobacco-chewin' squint-eyed mountain man. At Tuckahoe Park a water fountain beckons, as does playground equipment including a giant rope-spiderweb, bouncy-spring stools, and a mega-xylophone. Our return trip intersects rush hour at the high school where cars of last-minute arrivals jam the parking lot. Rabbit Count = 1, in the final mile.
