Summer Running Streak, Day #53 and #54

A couple of days of running here, which I'm writing about after because I want to do a separate entry for my race. Day #53 was a brief three and a half miles, at a pretty easy pace. Day #54 was two miles through an impending thunderstorm. The storm was mostly cloud-to-cloud lightning (we used to call that 'heat lightning' when I was in scouts) but I managed to get home before the storm went into full tilt.

Also did a seven mile hike along RI's "North-South Trail." The total distance of that trail is 78 miles, and it runs from the northwest corner of the state down to the beach in Charlestown. We started at Charlestown and hiked from the beach up into Burlingame Management Area. It seems like a really nice trail, once you get off the road and into the trail part. I am interested to look at the other sections of the trail and possibly plan a thru-hike of the trail for another year. Could be a lot of fun to do it in twenty mile chunks and camp each night.

I'm starting to get frustrated at the summer running stuff. I always run a bit slower in training during the summer because of the heat, and I know that's to be expected. But it is irritating.

Now onto the race report.
