How was your National Running Day? I hope you had a fun day and ran some place nice!
I was in San Francisco all day today, and while I typically use those city days to take a break from running, today there would be no such thing. Come lunch time, I headed out of the office, down Market street and onto the Embarcadero:Towards Fisherman’s Wharf (construction going on there, by the way, major zig-zagging and tourist-dodging necessary):What, it doesn’t look much like San Francisco to you? OK, how about this then:Yup, turn-around point (and, obviously, ultimate destination) was this wide-open view of the li’l Golden bridge.
A total of 6.66 miles, according to my Garmin — but RunKeeper reads it as 6.81, so I’ll go with that! — run with a friend and former co-worker I hadn’t seen in years, in just over 1:05. Fun times!

Today’s run:Does not reflect stopping at red lights, which – according to how Garmin interpreted the same data – took up more than five minutes:I also find it very strange that the two “apps” interpret the same data with different distances. Anyone know why this happens?
How much did you run today? Where?
