For some reason your running into work seems more impressive than Buckleys. Maybe because I know the routes you are taking. Most people would think you were insane, just goes to show its not really as hard once one gets out of the car-dependent mindset. Imagine a day where everybody is running or biking to work, no cars - crazy, huh!

Most people at 4240 do think I'm insane. Especially when I tell them "no, I ran" when they ask if I rode my bike to work.

The idea of running to/from work is mentally more challenging for me than laps aroud FP or Grants Trail. I think it is because to/from work is all or nothing, you can't really bail. But having done it a few times now, it's not so bad.

10.5 as bookends do make for a long day though.

Yeah, I'm fine with the 20 total, but I wouldn't break it up that way. 6/14 would be much better. I'm minimum 8 right now, with the more pleasant routes in the 9-10 range. Fortunately, the bus offers a way to shorten that.

Was thinking metro link to Brentwood. About 6 to home from there. 10.4 is min without assistance. Not planning to do the full distance both ways again. 14/6 would be better.
