7.5 mile run in Acton

We stayed at my sister-in-law's house in Acton last night. I took the morning off work while Andi had a meeting to attend. I snuck in an hour run before she left on my Acton loop (7.5 miles). It starts at the near the park on Crown Valley, cuts over to Soledad Canyon, then a right on Aliso Canyon, a right on Y-8 (yes I said Y-8, I didn't know that one even existed), then looping back on Briar Glen/Indian Oak/Country Way (the road changes names often). There are two killer hills. I have yet to check the grade on the Garmin but guess it is at least 15% (it may peak out around 20%). It took me an hour at a fairly easy pace, but it also took me about 3 miles to warm up.

P.S. I am also a "pro" on Wii Golf as of last night! I shot -2 on the 9 hold course!

Late addition: Andi also ran a 16 miler on Sunday. Her friend Dawn ran the first 10 with her and then biked the last 6 with her. They had a good run on the aqueduct, finishing in 2:20 (8:45 pace). Good because I recommended that she not run more than 2:20 no matter how far she had run.
