The Love.Run.Marathon (and half and 10K) at Huntsville State Park is coming up this weekend. I designed the course for them when they started the race a few years ago. It has to be changed this year because park of the park is closed for construction. I modified the course a few weeks ago, but was not sure about my measurement of one segment of the course. So, this afternoon I went out there and remeasured. It was 197 feet short, so I moved the turnaround point to make up the difference. All that took about 7.5 miles with an engineer wheel. On the way back in, I picked up the wheel and ran about a mile and a half to get in my daily run. The temperature was in the mid-80's and the park was loaded with bikers, hikers and runners.
