Lost?

So I went running yesterday...it was supposed to be a 3 mile day, but I felt like running 6...so I decided to change it up and run at this park near downtown. I was running and really enjoying it...I wasn't really paying attention, just following the path and waving at the other runners when I realized I had no clue where I was. I kept running hoping I would recognize where I was eventually (Greenville isn't that big)...so about 20 minutes later I emerged in downtown Gville...so the question now was do I just go the way I know to get to my car or brave the paths again...I decided to do both...kinda. I went what I thought was the right way, only to realize I was running on a major road(don't worry mom, I was running so I could see the cars coming)...a few nice drivers "waved" me across (it's much more fun to be the waver that the wavee :) ) ...so I ran on the road for awhile until I saw a path I recognized, I cut down a big hill to get to it. So I did a little off roading and ended up on the path. 10 short minutes later I was back at my car. I think I ended up running 8 or 9 miles. It was fun and a good change of pace. Next time I am going to look at the map of the course instead of just picking the road less taken. Moral of the story...make sure you don't have anywhere to go if you ever come running with me :)

Didn't you learn your lesson in our neighborhood? You never seem to pick the shorter route. :-)

Obviously I didn't learn...and yesterday when I was running on a trail a root came out and tripped me...I bit it! haha

I'll try that site...sounds cool
