My Garmin wasn't working so I used MapMyRun instead. It says that I ran 4.24 miles. It's a pretty good app but I don't like that it talks to me. It's also not a Garmin so I'm not going to like it just because.
I have trouble following directions while on the move, so I took off in the general direction I saw on the map and hoped for the best. I always ask the concierge where he or she recommends running. They will frequently have a map on hand or will draw you one if they don't.
I found myself in the community of River Oaks and enjoyed a lovely display of Christmas lights. I love Christmas lights because I love everything that lights up, even if it's not concert stage or a robot .
