I update this blog almost every day. It could be about anything: politics & current events, religion, work, geek-related materials. Sometimes I just post random thoughts.

Running in Oakfield

Being a little more settled in, Christa and I have now gotten back into our more usual routines. I have begun running again. Without consistent internet access, it has been difficult to map out some runs, but that will hopefully be changing soon. Living in Oakfield does provide some great advantages for the runner:
  1. There are no stop lights in the city at all. The nearest one is probably six miles away. Luckily, you don't need to stop too much.
  2. Much of the city is surrounded by long, county roads, ideal for long runs.
  3. There isn't a whole lot of traffic in the city, so you can relax as you run around the area.
  4. There is a nice trail that runs through the city and goes both east and west from the city. It is often shaded which is very nice.
