This Route Stinks


3 met this morning for a cool morning run….It was so dark that we did not see the fog! Here is what went down:

YHC decided an old trusty route with a twist was in Order so we went over the Railway and down Atlee Station road someone hit a skunk and we smelled this until we took a right on Jeans Grove Drive. We had to back track on Odey Drive to DeWitt, to Cudlipp Ave to Aaroe Dr, down the hill and back at Ashlar Pl back up to Aaroe to Cudlipp. Here was the twist, we took a left to run through the Giles Farm development up to Halifax drive and took this loop around(Thank you Marco Polo for leading this route) to finish at Atlee high school with 4 miles.

This was a tough route with many long hills due to the direction we ran this morning, great workout and Marco Polo took a spill near the end so we stopped, recovered and finished strong.
