We have 3 runs in my building. I was very, very nervous the 1st time alone (after my productive week.) The weekend before, I ran all the legs on my motorcycle. Wrote down exit numbers and things like that at the end of each leg. That helped quite a bit. During road construction season, I look at the DOT maps online before leaving so that I know what to expect. I have still been caught by surprise, but because I had viewed the map, I knew what my detour options were.
