Late morning run (start time 11:11),but cool enough morning and cloud cover. Wore the camelback. Started out at a walking pace then some run/walk, then more running so first mile at 11:25. Was thinking slow pace today, maybe 12:00 average, time on feet.
But pace got faster (but never really that fast).
Stopped at restroom behind Tarpon Tavern. Kept going, trail turns right then crosses under US19 via an old train tunnel. Zigzag back to Keystone until crossing over at Eastlake to get on the Starkey Gap trail. Did the length of that trail going to SR54 at Starkey Blvd. Stopped in at the Circle K for a muscle milk (should have carried it back but slammed it instead with two more miles to go).
Back southbound and then met Jessica at parking lot of Escape Brewery where I had one small but strong beer.
It was a beautiful day for this run.
In the evening had dinner at Jessica's parents house (takeout Carraba's) with Jess, baby/toddler, her parents and S and A.
