Another run in Webster, NY, another cool (compared to Florida) morning with 68 degrees at the start and 72 degrees at the finish. I also had a fun goal today - run from my brother's house over to my old house where I grew up (parents sold it in 2008 to move to FL). Took Klem to Holt Road, and then got on the (new for me) 104 bike trail and took that to Gravel Rd to Cherry Hill Lane back to my neighborhood. I stopped and took a picture of the old house. The "new" people have a pop up camper parked in the side yard. We also had one parked there from about 1978 to 2000. It's almost like it is back. Knocked on the neighbor from across the street and waited for her to answer. Her neighbors were out and called out to me a friendly/what-are-you-doing-here "can I help you?". Told them who I was and where I grew up and they were nice enough to give me a run down on who was still here and who had moved.
Got going again with a loop around the block before heading back the way I came.
After yesterday's run which was a little longer and faster paced, wasn't sure how I'd do but apparently I did ok with a faster overall pace then yesterday and a faster last mile.
Got back to Jim's house, showered and got ready to head up to 1000 Islands. Brian drove and we stopped at Charlie's for lunch for a Charlieburger (of course!). They had Loganberry juice at the fountain drink station.
Had a nice drive up, said hi to my parents then I took the boat into town with the boys for dinner and strolling around. Brian and Andy played chess on the giant chess board near the docks. Alex Bay is pretty much the same year after year but I miss Van's Marina with their "Sun and Fun Shoppe".
