Most of the North side was a subdivision but two homes had out of the ordinary vehicles parked on the street.


Some may call it a storm drain but I prefer to look at it as a creek bed.

From completing these runs outside my usual territory I’ve learned why I love my usual running routes so much – it’s shady. All the other routes were in broad sunlight and either flat or consisted of one giant hill. Still, I did enjoy the change in scenery.
