Finally broke my habit of the same roads, and went across the street to McChord Air Force Base. We drove around there recently, and I found myself saying, “Man, this would make a great run”. Paved trails everywhere, well off of the road; perfect for my little running partner in crime. The skies were gray and it looked like the sky was about to open up, so I figured I’d better make this quick.
About 2 miles in, it started spitting but thankfully that was the worst it got. With that said, it was WINDY. Holy crap it was frustrating. So. incredibly. windy. But we finished the run in 46:16 with a 9:13 pace, so I’ll take it. Thankfully we didn’t run into any low flying aircraft. Bonus.
