Ran my brand-new 6-mile loop last night. It’s a good one, a couple of hills (the stretch along Holgate, at the far end, is very up-and-down), and lots of scenery. Through Westmoreland Park, along the Eastmoreland golf course, by the Rhododendron Gardens, over the Brooklyn train yards, down through Oaks Bottom Wetlands, and back along the river. Very nice. From the starting point at SE 19th and Linn, to the finish line at SE 10th and Linn, it’s just a shade over 6 miles (6.03, according to Google Earth).

I ran that loop in almost the same time I ran the Nike Run Hit Wonder: 1:06:12. It was hot, I did better than I thought I would, but still kinda slow.
