Saw Whitney on Saturday, and she told me they were having the first of their Volition America ½ Marathon course preview runs the following morning.
Really appreciated the heads up because they had a nice turn out for a run out to the point. Among those attending, I got the chance to link up with Richard who I hadn’t seen for several years. We ran together for nearly the entire distance. He put down the hammer over the last two miles, and I had nothing left to go with him.
Whitney and Dennis have laid out a rather nice course for this race. There are trees lining the majority of it. And, as you near the point, the traffic becomes nearly nonexistent. With three little neighborhood loops, we were at the turn around before we knew it. The return trip is nearly a straight line back to the Food Lion.

Whitney plans a few more preview runs this summer. When she does, I’ll make sure to pass it along.
