I prolonged this run due to temperatures warming up late in the afternoon. Being a Chicago resident, I wonder if this is the fall norm in Dallas Texas.
I mapped out a route towards Parkside Commons – Lee Park in order to make this run bearable, and also see another side of Dallas. I probably would not have wanted to go as far mentally if I would have just winged it and just ran some made up course towards nowhere, but Lee Park gave me a legit destination. And thanks to Google Maps for keeping me on route, calling out any upcoming turns. I liked that a lot.
Today was a beautiful day out, but what confused me was not seeing any runners or let alone bikers along my beautiful route.
The bummer after finishing this run was it not being uploaded as part of ‘Virtual Poland Spring Marathon Kickoff 5 Mile’. It just irks me that Strava counted it more as a monthly 5k versus a 5 mile run. Oh that just grinds my gears, but at the end of the day at least I got in a good run and saw more of Dallas Texas.
