Turn by Turn Itinerary

There are those that have asked about my run itinerary and I’ve created a turn by turn list of directions, supplied below. After a few recon missions, I settled on a route that was as direct as possible, but as far from dangerous car traffic as I could get, which admittedly, wasn’t always easy. I’ve taken the appropriate precautions by running against traffic and making myself visible with morning lights, a flag, and reflective pinwheels duct taped to the front of my stroller. With all that said, I’ve found nothing short of hitting a brick wall will get the attention of a texting driver (PS – PLEASE DON’T EVER BE ONE OF THOSE)…so if you know of friends and family in the areas I’ll be running, feel free to alert them to my travel routes.
