Mill Creek Park Group Run

Today after work, I decided to drive to Mill Creek Park to go on a group run that Jim Harris posted on the NEO Trail forum.  Usually I'd rather run at the CVNP mid-week since it's closer, but I had an itchin' to run at Mill Creek.

There ended up being 4 other people including Tim Knapp, Jim, Frank and Todd Hanks.  I wasn't sure how far I'd end up going since I didn't want to get back to Akron too late.  They planned on running a full YUT-C loop.  When we got to Covered Bridge, I stuck with them and we finished with about 13.5 miles.

Tim signed up for the Oil Creek 100 miler and Frank is training for YUT-C 50K.  Always good to see others reaching for big goals.  I had a fun time tonight!  Afterward, even though it was getting late, I stopped at JibJab in Girard to get some hot dogs, fries and a milkshake.

Got a YUT-C 50K finisher's award (bottle opener) from Jim!
