Eisenhower Park

I’m sure I’ve run the outside loop at Eisenhower Park a couple hundred times. It’s only about 4 miles.

My foot was sore most of the way, but only a kind of dulled soreness. I’m not sure whether to attribute the lack of pain to the obnoxious amount of stretching and calf rolling I’ve [...]
