Ted's 3 mile run (5K), on the Prado.

This 3 mile run is a great way to start the weekend. (There is also a 2 mile version of the course.)  3 miles is a perfect distance for beginners.  3 miles is also great distiance for intermediate, and elite runners.  Runner's World Magazine' s philosophy is that shorter runs, at a fast pace, improves half marathon- and marathon times (faster splits)!  This is a scenic run through historic Balboa Park. This is your tour of Balboa Park, on the run! We run past many of the park's attractions. We may choose to do a core workout after the run. We will meet in front of the Hall of Champions. ( I think that it is safer to have a lighted parking lot next to the meetup area.) To get to the Hall of Champions, take Park Blvd. and turn on to Presidents' Way. The Hall of Champions is located at the corner of Presidents' Way and Pan American Road.

    Great. I bested my last time running solo. I did the 3 miles in 26 min and 1 sec. I will see guys again 2 week. I'm flying to Portland to run the Rock 'n' Roll Half-Marathon. Take care. :)

    So many great people who love to run make Ted's 5k Run on the Prado the best Friday night deal in San Diego - and not nearly as expensive as a movie and dinner!

    Well, guys my hours are tight this week. I tell you all yes that I'm coming, but I might be doing this run earlier like around 3 or 4 in the afternoon. The reason for that is I have another show I want to catch that starts at 7:30, so I'm running solo early.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
