Ran at Longleaf with the Striders - first time on a Thursday in quite some time. I had forgotten how dark the bike trail is so didn't bring a headlamp or hand held. So, first few miles were kind of slow but was able to pick it up once I hit the lighted streets of Aristida. Approaching the turnaround, I decided to play "beat the 9:00 guy". Ran by feel and looking at the overall average as it ticked down.
Was nice to visit with some of the Striders - Karen, Tom, Lauren, Clarke, Cindy and some others.
