    I was in Durham visiting a sick relative. The hotel was very close to Memorial Hospital. The hotel provided transportation to the hospital. The hotel had a nice veranda attached to the room. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful.

    When I was there I did a run roughly following the Pumpkin Loop in the Carolina North Forest. You can just Google for it. That was a nice run in forest surroundings, slightly hilly, relatively smooth gravel surface.
