Highlands Run

67 mins
9 miles

My schedule said I was only supposed to do four miles today, with the intention of running a race tomorrow. Since there were no races scheduled in the metro area this weekend, I got my coach's approval to go a bit longer today and run a workout tomorrow instead.

Set out on a relaxed, easy run meandering through the Virginia-Highland neighborhoods. I made my way down to Piedmont Park, ran a few loops on the Active Oval just for kicks, and headed back toward my house. I got back to Briarcliff right at 1:07, so it felt like a natural place to end the run and call it nine miles even.
