|Look at how dark the sky is! (I was almost hit by a car while taking this photo.)|
|There are groups of butterflies like |
this all over one side of the park.
Four of us started nice and early at 7:30. Six others came and went. Deb and I lasted the longest, doing nine laps for 11.25 miles. It was fun seeing some club members I haven't been able to walk with recently.
|Franklin Park Conservatory is well |
known for its (indoor) annual live butterfly exhibit.
Deb and I were scheduled to do 12 miles today in preparation for the Xenia Half Marathon in just a couple of weeks. Yesterday, I had my mind set on doing only 10 miles. Luckily, Deb talked me into doing one more lap for 11.25. (This is why we are good training partners!)
We were pretty slow today. We started at around 14:30 per mile and ended closer to a 15-minute mile. That's OK, it was supposed to be a long "slow" distance day.
I like the art throughout this park that makes it interesting even when the flowers are not in bloom.
