Start Time - 6:00. We will be trying to beat sunset, at 7:52.
We are targeting a pace of 2.5+ mph.
Let’s get a quick 5 in after work. We’ll start at Sope Creek CRNRA. From there we’ll wind our way over to Columns Drive, taking in a brief stop at the cemetary. Then we’ll wind our way back to Sope Creek parking lot, possibly including a quick lap of the pond.
