Today's awesome walk, 6.57 miles in 2:10

I wanted to go to the Arboretum today, but it's been raining a lot and I knew the trails would be nasty like they were in Interlaken Park yesterday. Or worse. So I figured I'd stick to sidewalks and finally walk all the way to the U-District. I've been considering it for a while, so it was fun to finally go today on a totally new route. 

The nice part about heading to the U-District is that there are lots of buses back home if I poop out. But I didn't. I really wanted to keep pushing and get as close as possible to last week's total miles.

My favorite moment of the day was getting to UW Med Center via the long way. It was just a few months ago that I went straight there from home one Saturday morning and that was the longest walk since I started. Today, I did that distance uphill instead of downhill, and it was the final third or so of my total journey. Pow!
