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.

    A Good Run Yesterday, by everyone who attended. Some fast times, too! Even I ran a little faster yesterday: Thanks to our "Jack-Rabbit" Runners. Afterwards, some of us went to Di Milles Italian Restaurant; and, filled our bellies with good food, and brew!

    Wow, what a great run. Population doesn't matter. It was a good push I got and needed. With the Mizuno shoes back on me my time that was closed to 28 min last week was shaved down to 24:24. Not the fastest, but it's near my average. Good job everyone!!
