This year's excursion did not reach the same levels of epic-ness that last year's did, but I still managed to throw in 7 miles of awesome Philly detours.
Due to some holiday traveling, I had to bump up my run on the calendar, but that allowed it to coincide perfectly with the Tall Ships Festival, a special one-weekend-only bash that brought the infamous World's Largest Rubber Duck to my fine city. Alas, the Duck was nowhere to be found on either of the two times I ventured to Old City during the festival, but that's okay. I had a blast revisiting some of my favorite historic attractions, even if I was a puddle of sweat by the end of my journey.
