2017-May-16 Tuesday Route

Hi,

I’m out of town Tuesday 5/16. The calendar calls for a 3, 5, and 10 miles.

3 miles:

Click “mapOmeter” for a bigger map or to print.

Water: Brookside park. Can run it counterclockwise instead of clockwise which would make more sense water-wise.

5 miles:

Click “mapOmeter” for a bigger map or to print.

Water: Brookside park, (mile 1 & 6 in the 10 mile run), Swift Stop at Mile 3 (& 8) south of the mall.

10 miles would be 2x the 5 mile route.
