Playing Catchup Again!

No I'm not trying to catchup on my miles, just catchup my BLOG.
On Wednesday I went to visit my parents in Boardman so did a run on both Wednesday and Thursday in Millcreek Park. This is a beautiful setting for running. My play area as a child.
On Wednesday I ran a little 3 miler after it had just rained. That was nice.
Thursday I ran a 6.2 mile loop I have from my parents house and it travels around Newport Lake. Always enjoy running in the park. Should do it more often.
Friday I was back home so ran my three mile loop at Mohican. Lots of people, but one would expect it for 4th of July.

I am getting closer to that magic 25,000 miles of running. I have 63.25 miles to go. I thought I would hit it on the 19th of July, but now the 13th looks more likely. Do you see this Rob?

I like running in Mill Creek Park. Did you take to the trails or the road?
25,000, wow, that's alot of miles.
Can I say, I probably will never drive that far?

Kim,
I ran on road primarily for time sake. Of course I could have ran 3 miles of it on trail. This is the section around Newport Lake that has road during YUTZY 50 KM. I have drove well over 25,000 miles in my lifetime, it may be near 1 million.

Mike,
That was a 6.2 mile loop and it starts at my parents house about 1/2 mile from Lake Newport in Millcreek, then run the roads completely around Lake Newport including Latermen Falls. It is a quick an easy run to get up and do well visiting my parents and not cut into visiting time.
I can believe 25,000 miles is accomplished very quickly in an airplane. In fact I may have that many miles as a passenger. I will never get it as a pilot.
