An early early morning run today. Since half of our running group is on a family trip to North Carolina this weekend, scouting the Laurel Valley White Water 35 Mile Run course I'm sure, it was just James and I meeting at the Monte Sano State Park hiker's parking lot at 5:15AM for a run. As usual, I waited until the last minute to grab my stuff to leave, which meant James had to wait on me...again. Anyway, we finally took off for our run at 5:30AM. James picked the route and we ended up running sections of the Mountain Mist 50K course, including the powerline cut trail section as well as a few climbs. The trails are seriously overgrown along that powerline cut section and we had to watch every step for much of this section. Large rocks were covered and any misstep today could have caused some serious ankle twisting and rolling. Luckily, both James and I only had a couple of close calls. These days, it is not an actual fall if you catch yourself with your hands on the ground. Falls are only counted, if your knees make contact with the ground;-) We ended up running close to 8 miles with a couple of slow climbs and some pacey (if that's a word) downhills. Let's see what the weekend holds, weather and running wise.
