20.2 miles today. I finished with a pace somewhere between 8 minutes 30 seconds and 8 minutes 40 seconds - my RunKeeper app somehow reported a random mile in the middle of my run taking an hour and 3 minutes, but judging by the miles on either side of that one, it was considerably faster than that...
I normally just set out on my runs from my front door and go through the neighborhoods near my house but this morning I decided to drive out to a trail system and head towards a park with a 6 mile loop around a lake. The change of scenery was greatly appreciated.
The picture of the grassy area is at the south entrance to the park and even though it's about 26 miles north of downtown Detroit, thanks to the relatively flat topography of SE Michigan, you can still see the skyline on a clear day (I couldn't see it today though).
The lake is a small inland lake and it was practically deserted when I stopped to take a photo at about 6:30 a.m. but by this afternoon it would probably be absolutely packed with boats.
Sometimes it's nice to get away from my normal running routes.
