Thursday Jul 11 #


My hotel gave me a nice map which is basically an O map. There are a couple of markings, but mostly it just shows buildings, canals and roads.

So I was thumbing my route home from dinner (and gelato, of course) and keeping in contact (walking) and then I crossed a canal which wasn't there. I was sure I was where I was, but I wasn't. I was so flummoxed, I took out my phone and checked. Sure enough, it showed a canal. The map was wrong!
7 AM

Run 38:50 [1] 4.0 mi (9:43 / mi) +18m 9:35 / mi

Went for a run in the morning. Cool and cloudy in Venice, really nice for running, no map involved. Crossed the Rialto aiming for the Accademia but got turned around and made a loop. Without signs for the Accademia I aimed back towards the Piazzale Roma/Ferriovia and wound up there, and then ran faster on the straight shot home. Had I kept going (once I was straightened out) I would have found Accademia. But without a map and compass, or the sparse and random signage, it's hard to keep a course. But still fun!
