Route: Start at 8th Ave and President, over to Prospect Park West, up to Grand Army Plaza, then East on Eastern Parkway to Rogers. South on Rogers to Glenwood, west to Bedford, then north on Bedford back to Eastern Parkway. End at Prospect Park West and President.

Notes: Geez, it's hard to remember anything except how humid it's been the last few days. I've never been a great warm weather runner (perfect conditions for me: 45 degrees and overcast), but like a lot of runners, I find that it's the humidity that's really draining. Anyway, another run with lots to see -- the Brooklyn Museum, stores and businesses along Rogers, and some very attractive houses along parts of Bedford. The front of one car repair place on Rogers was encased in rainbow-colored siding and would've made a great picture -- if I had a camera. I'll look for one this weekend.
