#100happydays day 86 A Long Run
28k BOOM! Done! We had a great run today down our favorite road. We started our early and the weather was perfect! With hydration packs on, sunscreen and some nutrition in our packs we were ready for a great run.
This was a run with memories. We have been running Doane Road for years. We’ve done most of our marathon training on this road. It is a quiet, rolling county road, but not for long. A major highway is going in and splitting the road in two. The plan is to put a major intersection on it and turn it into a major four lane road. So while the road is still a quite county road, we are going to take advantage of it and enjoy every step.
We ran out Doane to Queensville, then out to Warden to Bill’s Turkey Farm. They must have been cleaning the barn because the odor of “turkey barn” drifted down the road with us until we turned around at the cow pasture.
An out and back 14k works for us, like trails the road can look entirely different once you’re on the other side. As usual we never know what we’ll find on a run we found this door set up as a garden prop on our way back home.
Ok, I got to say the best part was at the end of the run when we jumped in the pool to cool off!
