AM - 6 miles of an exploration adventure run in the city of Edinburgh Scotland - I surprised Tracy with a trip to celebrate our 25th anniversary- We arrived early this morning - and as she took an extended nap- I went out for a run.  Really very interesting landscapes and sites.  Ran through a park called the Meadows and then to Holyrood Park which is a hill/rock outcropping where Arthur's Seat is located.  Cool run with great panoramic views of the city and the surrounding area.  Will post some  photos later.

AM - 7 miles or so running around Edinburgh.  Really nice weather - no clouds or wind and in the upper 50s.  Lots of walking expected for the rest of the day.
