Thirteen Hundred Twenty-Eight


August 30, 2021
7.41 Miles in 1:19:44
Mood: Pushing North on a new route for the fun of it.
Soundtrack: Bo Burnham "Inside"

I had a destination in mind for this run. The Marjory Perry Nature Reserve was my goal. It's a little wetland along the Highline Canal right around the 32 mile marker of the trail. The closest mile marker to my house is the 25, but thanks to the very curvy nature of the trail, I was able to go much more directly and get to my destination in about three miles because if you're ever trying to get somewhere in the shortest distance possible, the Highline Canal is NEVER the way you want to go.

I enjoyed my route which was a path I had never really taken before, and it was fun getting to places that are a little off the well beaten path of my usual routes. This was a very fun run, even though my earbud batteries died halfway through so I had to do the second half of the run with no music.

(Oh, and for those keeping track at home, which is basically no one but me. I hit 100 miles for August on this run to extend the 100 mile month streak to 25. I'm almost halfway to tying my longest streak ever of 51 months.)
