I am heading back to NYC as I type this (love free wi-fi on Amtrak). It's been a busy trip home with lots of running. I ran a 5 mile race today and (spoiler alert) had a great race with a new 5M PR at a 7:53 pace! That's right - sub 8's! I'll have a full recap soon (after a Wine and Dine recap, Philly Half recap and Turkey Trot 5K recap) I promise!
Yesterdays long run went well. I went out despite the temps and got my 12 miles in. The trail turned out to be beautiful. It was a paved 2.5 mile path (5 miles round trip). There is a tiny stream running next to it as well. I bet in the summer it's beautiful. Mostly flat, just a couple of tiny hills. I did attempt some trail running towards the end, but mostly to see something (you'll see below). Will definitely be putting this trail to use in the future!

I followed up my run with a trip to Wawa for some coffee and a breakfast burrito. I seriously love Wawa coffee. If I could finish all runs with some Wawa coffee, it would make winter running so much easier! The burrito was even more delicious then normal. I may have sat in the car in the parking lot and eaten the whole thing.
