2013-12-29 - Wet Met Branch Trek

~10 miles @ ~9.7 min/mi

Light rain, big puddles on the sidewalk: it's a solo afternoon jog from home to Union Station along the Metropolitan Branch Trail in DC. There's one functional water fountain at the Takoma Rec Center tennis courts, 3rd & Van Buren Sts NW. The sun only comes out during the ride home on the Metro, when air conditioned cars make for post-run shivers — brrrrr!

Mile splits are 10:40-11:23-9:32-9:42-10:13-10:18-9:06-9:20-8:40-7:42 — pushing on the final flat stretch past the NoMa Station, where a friendly bystander cheers. The Garmin GPS provides the only record of the journey, since sleeping the iPhone before Runtastic finishes its countdown apparently freezes the countdown — oops!
