This is very timely. Yesterday I was talking to someone about walking the streets of Franklin. She lives down off of 35th and Forest Hill. She said she took a bike ride and went a mile from her home and actually got lost. Can you believe it? Lost in your own backyard.

The entanglement of streets is so ridiculous in that area it's beyond description.

I remember doing for a run in the subdivision across Drexel from my house and getting hopelessly lost. I also remember wrenching my ankle in that same subdivision and needing to hobble home - 1/2 miles as the crow flies, but about 2.5 miles on streets that swirled and banked AWAY from where I needed to go before curving back.

Made for vehicles and nothing else.

GOING for a run ... ("doing for a run"?)
