Stayed at my house, was going to sleep in a little but Jessica had to head back to Palm Harbor so I ran a little longer, solo, as it was too late to bother Joe or Jamie by the time my plans changed. I wanted to run a little bit on the new section of Pinellas trail that ends at the Pasco county line which will soon have a connector going to Starkey Blvd trail as part of the Florida coast to coast connector trail system, linking existing trails with new gap connectors to traverse from St. Petersburg to Cocoa Beach. This new section heads south just over 2 miles, then heads west on Keystone Blvd where it links up to the main Pinellas Trail. It was a very peaceful run (especially since the northern end is officially closed), running next to (fortunately not directly underneath) power lines. It's mainly open but there's some shade here and there, no water stops. Saw a deer cross the trail. It didn't seem to care that there was a 4 foot high fence on either side of the trail area.
