Victory and Sleep

I had the chance to run a 5k in my old neighborhood (for one summer) in TN this weekend. I had an easy time cruising to victory. And I won't lie, it was a lot of fun. I wish I could say that I ran faster to earn the win, but the competition was just slower. The course was hilly by Chicago standards, but I enjoyed the rolling terrain.

There is a really impressive trail system that is forming in the Nashville area. Yesterday I did a 13 mile run from a trailhead near my parents' house to the Shelby Bottoms area, and I didn't have to stop at any crossings. There were some neat bridges, tunnels, wetlands areas that provide neat views. Today I went out for an easy 6 mile run along the Stones River.

I shared a victory nap with my youngest nephew, Drake. That was a better prize than the free oil change that I won.
