philipkperkins March 17, 2018 No Comments If a picture is worth a thousand words, then here’s sixteen thousand word and change on this morning’s run over at Cheslen Preserve. I typically don’t have a happy face when starting out on my long runs. Had been semi-dreading this one all week. And then 200 yards later I see the sun and all is right with the world. Lots of work has been done on the trails over the past couple years. I hardly recognize the place sometimes. Small little cemetery from 1800 about a mile from the parking lot. About a mile of the trail runs right along a little river. Most of the trails are very runnable. This section, not so much. Into the woods. . . . . . where it gets a little gnarly. . . . . . and technical. It’s not a trail run without a couple streams to cross. . . . . . or wildlife to run into. Hello, Mr Groundhog! Some of the run is in the woods. . . . . . yet quite a bit is open meadows. And finally I’m back to my car . . . two miles short of my target. Drat! Picturesque place for a rest, but I’m not quite done. . . fin ← NJ Ultra 100 Mile – Peak Training Schedule Caught a 10K → Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.Comment Name Email Website Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
