Ran/walked 61 minutes and did 3.1 miles

My wife was busy planting tulip bulbs, so I went running by myself. I parked at the 100th South lot and went south on the Jordan River Parkway. Quite a few walkers, cyclists, and runners were out on a beautiful afternoon. The shade temperature was about 58 (F), but the sun temperature was in the 60s. Not a cloud was in the sky. There was a lot of wind blowing from the south. That wind, a headwind, made it harder to run, but it kept me cool. I originally started with 3 layers, but after about half a mile, I took off my nylon windbreaker and tied it around my waist. I had a nice run/walk.

Hi Allen, been a long time. Came across your blog again today and was so happy to see you still running. I am still trying to get back into it. Started the c25k program (run/walk) last week and so far so good. Don't know if I'll ever get back to the way I was when I ran NYC in 2009, but i'd be happy with 3 or 4 run/walks per week. I'm looking forward to reading your blog again and re learning how to run/walk. Hope all is well. Joanne (aka LIrunner9)
