To the Orchard and Back

Ran with the high school cross country team after school, at least in part. Run featured a 1.8 mile route to the apple orchard, where the meet will be held on Friday. Once there, helped the head coach wheel the course while the kids ran, and then we ran ran back.

Wore the modified Asics that don't have the heels. I plan on modifying a pair of road shoes in the same fashion soon, but these sufficed just fine. I was curious to see how they'd perform on the roads, and they were just as great. The only thing that seems weird about them now is simply walking around in them. But as far as running with them, it feels quite fluid and dare I say even graceful.

Day off tomorrow, since it's my long day with grad school. Running resumes again on Thursday.
