The Charles

Time: 77:56
Distance: 11.5 mi.

Morning run with Brian from Chez McArdle in Brookline out to the Charles, where we ran up to the North End on the north side of the river and back on the south side past Beacon Hill and Back Bay. While we weren't trying to really do a workout, I wanted a second effort getting my legs going this week, so I got Brian to do a 6 x 30 sec. fartlek which he pretty much schooled me on. We decided to jump in the river when we were done with that and Brian was met with the cheer of "Hey Gorgeous!" by some cute British tourists has he ran off the dock.

You're a brave man to be jumping into the Chuck. Hope you didn't grow any new limbs.
