A Brooksville Runaround

In the spirit of my previous runaround post, I decided to do the same for my latest long run.

This time I ran in Brooksville, FL instead.  The combination of week 7 of training plan (Disney here I come!), the kid’s school camping trip and the opportunity to run in a new place warranted this post.

Sidenote – If you’re in Orlando for business, this run is close to the airport.

I start my run imagining I am cruising down Beverly Hills.
