2009-04-08 - Hills with Mary

~2.4 miles @ ~12.5 min/mi

A class brings me out to Reston near the Lake Fairfax trail. After lessons are over Mary Ewell and I meet in the ice skating rink parking lot. Mary's fiance Andy reads as we run the slopes to the horse-trail marker-posts at the soccer fields and back. Dog walkers let their pets romp near the water crossings; mountain bikers startle me as they loom during our return trip. Mary is coming back into her training and runs well, ~12 min/mi outbound and ~13 during the return trip according to her GPS. She and Andy and I enjoy a dinner at the Sunflower vegetarian restaurant before they drop me off at the Vienna metro.
