AM - 5.5 miles this morning on a trail next to the Davidson river beginning at the Pisgah Forest gate.  Temps were cool after a front passed.  Sat with my feet in Turkey Creek next to the cabin- ice cold.

AM - a little over 2 miles on the former golf course with Finn.  The mowing crew is clearly not able to keep up with the growth of the grass - which was well up to my knees in spots this morning - which was also very wet from morning dew.  I wore the old Vibrams as I do on shorter runs on the turf, but for some reason today - perhaps because of how wet the grass was, I developed blisters/cuts in like less than 2 miles and had to cut the run short as a result.

PM - bandaged up the blisters/cuts and then wrapped with pre-wrap (which was effective - btw) - 7.25 miles on the treadmill at lunchtime.
