Some of my family are dairy farmers so we can't start much earlier than 8:15, but we meet here every week for a 4 1/2 mile run. It's a central location, about half-way between where I live now and where I grew up on the family farm.
In the warm weather we get popcicles afterwards.
Last night there were 5 of us:
- Ken, my brother-in-law, a long time high school cross country coach and one of the top 60+ runners in the area
- Greg, my brother, who has run over 25 marathons
- Randy, a friend from church, who ran his first marathon last year and is currently training for Boston
- Keith, my nephew, a former All-Ohio miler and current track & cross country coach
