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 love to run with the runners of Ted's 3 miler in Balboa Park. It's like having a running family and it feels like home every time I see my running buddies. Always great and encouraging to hear about our runner's recent races like Ted's Portland RnR. I'm getting ready for next week's San Diego RnR just four months after foot reconstructive surgery and another upcoming after the race. I feel like I might break 1:45 for the 1/2 in my 55-59 age group.

    It was great being out at Ted's run. Even the random surprises like seeing Allison with her friend David showing up, Brandon returning, or a new runner with her baby is great breath of fresh air. Nice people and it was good to see Jim back as well. I'm glad the hot and humid days are gone. Sorry, Ted, no rain here. Great job, everyone. Enjoy your Memorial Day weekend.

    It looks like I have to stay a little later than expected which means I will not be there by six so I won't be able to make it. :-( hopefully next time.

      No I think it would have helped with me leaving at 5pm from my work place, but I'm still here. I was looking forward to it, so I hope I can make the next one.
