On Saturday we did a 10.5 mile out and back run on the American Tobacco Trail. This is a hard packed dirt trail that runs from Apex in the south up through Durham in the north on the outskirts of civilization. It is great for running or easy bike rides on a mountain bike.
After that we tempo'd for another 8 miles then spun in easy the rest of the way home.
We were able to meet up with friends both nights of the weekend, since my Mom is in town for baby-watching duties, and had a lot of fun. Mom leaves tomorrow so it is back to the new, new normal.
