Raiders of the Lost Ark

Tonight I ran my "Raiders of the Lost Ark" run. 6 miles heading north of my home and running through the neighborhood of Circle G Ranches. I was working on keeping my pace as close to 10 minutes per mile, as I could. The first two miles came in at 10:14 and 10:32. I walked a bit to eat half a GU. I wanted to see if that would kick in and let me get to the 10 mpm goal. The 3rd and 4th miles came in at 11:42 and 11:52. Not, so good.

Then I had the rest of the GU and miles 5 and 6 were at 10:55 and 10:42. A bit better. But, all in all a good run that Harrison Ford would be proud of.

Now, why do I call it the "Raiders of the Lost Ark" run? Because I run past this home (click on it last, it may not let you come back)and it's the home of this guy. It's for sale, so if you're interested let me know.

My Run - click on the map and change it to satelitte photo to see if you can find the home. Hint, it's near the 2 mile mark.

Phoenix real estate is so interesting.... The little pockets of homes that are $5M+ right next to Guadelupe (sp?). (move day for us is in two weeks! Then it is off to an apartment in KC until the school year is done - blah. THEN it is off to live with my inlaws for a while! BLAH BLAH! :)

I honestly thought that you were talking about MLS #4102004 which is across Kyrene from where my inlaws live. Amazing lot, but odd house - it is super dark inside (based on the pictures i've seen).

Your dip at mile 3, how much of that was because you stopped to eat the gu? I can't seem to get one of those down without slowing down 30 seconds.

I think the extra minutes in 3 and 4 are mostly from the walk breaks. Slowly I eliminate them, but as of today I still have them.

The kyrene mansion is amazing too. I've run by there on some of my long runs. A canal goes behind it. Used to be owned by an internet adult website. They even had some shoots there.

I'm going to need to find some of the gold that Indiana Jones did to afford that one. Nice job with the run!

The guest house on that property is nicer then my house. LOL

Nothing at all wrong with walking. Knocking out 6 miles at approx 10:30 is still great.

That's a nice looking home. A little out of my price range, but it still looks pretty nice!

Sounds like you had a decent run.

What a beaut! Can you lend me a few mil?

Guess there's dough in sound editing, huh.
