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.

    Well, the humidity was cramping my style today, but I made it through the run. I'd say it was a lot like running up in the Rockies. I was breathing very hard. Anyway did the run at 4:35 and finished at 5:01:27. So, my time was 26 min 27 sec. I'll see you guys for sure next Friday.

    I will have to do this run early. I'm going to a concert at the Embarcadero to see En Vogue.

    I shouldn't have missed last week's for the ball game, we were destroyed by the Giants 10-1. So this week I wouldn't miss it for the world... especially since Teresa is going to be there ;)

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.
