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.

    I did my homework today; and, went to the Visitors Center today.

    There will be no events,the rest of December, that will interfere with the Friday Meetup. So it will not be necessary to reschedule it (again); or move it to another location.
    Plus, this is one of our better Holiday-run locations. (Thanks to all of you who gave suggestions.)

    Sorry to all of you who RSVPD for Friday, December 7th. December Nights caused an unexpected parking, and people, nightmare! So I had to reschedule the Meetup for Sunday, at the VERY LAST minute. My apologies. Our small group had a great run under the Holiday lights. We ran by a Christmas performance at the Organ Pavilion.

    I would love to, but a total newcomer without a car makes it hard for me to commute... anyone who lives around Westfield UTC?

    I was halfway there when I got your message and just turned around and blew off the run. You should set a meet up spot at seaport village Ted for Friday night. Sunday doesn't work for me.

    Sorry folks! I've had to change the Meetup to Sunday, December 9th at 6PM. There is a Holiday Festival tonight (Dec. 7th.).

    There are no parking spaces available ; and, they're charging $10-$20 to park. Thought I'd save you a trip! I just got here.

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.
