Growing up in South Florida has spoiled me.
I live roughly 3 miles from the start of the C&O canal in Georgetown. The location of the start of my journey on the ADT.
Also running along the C&O is the Capital Crescent trail which splits off in Maryland and loops half way around DC ending in Silverspring, MD.
So, my walk this weekend will be the 3 miles to C&O, hop on the CC and then follow Rock Creek Trails home, for a total of 19 miles.
I've run this route while training for my marathon. However, I've never walked such a distance and am eager to compare the differences. My fear is that I will get bored. I also worry about being exposed to the cold for longer, while exerting less energy? We'll see.
