Today we started out the day at Rutgers University, where we were treated to a real nice breakfast, and speech by the Rutgers football coach.  We were supposed to run out of the stadium, but due to a heavy downpour of rain we didn't.  

From there, we went Middlesex County, where we ran to the Sherriff Office and was greeted by a small but very welcoming crowd.  From there, we went to Montgomery Township.  That area of New Jersey was very nice.  We were able to see pasture land and lots of grass and trees. Very different from all the other areas we have been, where it is mostly building and concrete. 

From there, we went to Ewing Township, where once again we were greeted nicely. From there we went to Trenton to the Arm and Hammer Park, home of the Trenton Thunder.  There we were given a very nice lunch and were able to run on the baseball field--similar to what we do with our Texas Rangers. 

After that ceremony we were done for the day, because a couple of runs got canceled. So we returned back from only running about 5 to 6 miles for the day. 

For dinner we traveled to Bayonne New Jersey where we were treated to a authentic Italian dinner where everything was made from scratch.  All in all another great day.
