I ran from the hotel to the lake and around it again today. Not sure exactly how far it is, but according to my Nike+ it is about 6 along the route I take. I stopped and took a few photos along the way. It was really nice today with just light winds, though of course there was still lots of mud along the north shore. I get my little extra workout when my running shoes gather a few inches of concrete-like mud, making them a whole lot heavier.
Then there was the grumpy trucker from Ch2MHill who found it necessary to chew me out for running on that road. Someone needs to tell him that it is a public road and not HIS personal road. I wasn't even close to in his way at all. I love running that road because it seems kind of wild with birds and caribou tracks and the sound of the water lapping on the shore. I even saw a bit of a rainbow there later today.
