Stride Strava Art – The Mushroom

YHC has been struggling with my running the last couple months.  I blame it on the wicked COVID.  Well it gets blamed for everything else, right.  I signed up a couple weeks back when Stride was calling out to fill open slots.  With that I came up with a couple Strava Art routes – one which was run today.  And the other next Friday.  Yes, I signed up to Q again – funny how that works.

The Mushroom is a 5.8 mile route around Lexington.  You have to pass the starting point about halfway through, which is definitely a teaser as you come up along the Admin Building.  A few did some XL miles before and after.

Weather: soggy, just rained, but no rain for the hour

1 minute warning, intro, route (thanks Pickle), count of 10
