It seems that others have found out about the open space preserve where I love to run whenever I can make it over that way. Amy, Cindy and I planned to meet by the bathrooms in the lower parking lot. When I arrived at the park I could see that not only was that lot full, but lot # 2 was full as well. It was only 6:45 am – where did everyone come from?
By the time we met up and made our way to the lower lot we could see “part” of the problem was Team and Training was meeting up for a run this morning. The large crowd was gathering and growing in size as we made our last bathroom stop before the run. I know that you all understand the importance of getting all of your “business” taken care of ahead of time – if at all possible.
Fortunately for us, our planned running trail is not one of the more popular trails. We get 1.2 miles to warm up before hitting the 2.5 mile hill. This is by far the worst part of the entire trail, and once you conquer the hill you feel like you have really accomplished something. But the run continues, and there is still much climbing ahead as long as you continue on the trail.
