Burch Hollow to Overlook and back.  There and back again...  This reminded me that aver 6 miles is a long way when trying to sustain effort and not run very often.  But I loved the outing...

LCC Quarry trail.  Loved it actually.  Finally remembered this little gem.  River was really flowing.  Beautiful and huffed and puffed up the 1100 ft rise (mostly)...great times

Mountain Dell loop.  Beautiful for about 4 miles of this then gas line slog down  to the road was a bit bush wack.  Osprey nest on top of a power pole though that was really cool.  Also stepped on a snake tail and it freaked me out.

Wet fest.  Started with a lovely room at Oreo's house and got to walk to the start with about 5 minutes to spare.  Lovely.  Rained the whole time.  Temps 45 to 50 I would guess.  Was actually kind of cool to run in the rain.  Soaking wet by mile 7.  Finished steady the whole race and was happy with the time.  Oreo busted out an easy 1:42.  Was strong.  

Fun to see mom and dad at the spillway giving some props and photo ops.  Finish line was a dud as I was freezing and shaking within 10 minutes and it was rainy and cold and the traditional Creamie was not even appealing as I was too dang cold.  Went to Oreos car, stripped down, found a hat and a blanket in there and waited til he could gather the crew.


Fun race.  Star Trek last night awesome as well.

Up in God's country early am with Oreo.  Wheelers to Beaver pond(cool pond made by some industrious and architectually and artistically sound beavers) to Maple loop.  I was a bit in the hurt on the up hill but such a beautiful day and cool trail.  this is one of the best for sure.  Sweet

Wheelers/Icebox/Beaver loop with hairman and Oreo.  Beautiful chilly morning.  I was huffing and puffing on the way up though.  Almost 45 yo though so actually pretty darn happy... where you at Scarification?
