Training Log - Tuesday, November 30, 2010
I decided to go for a run after work today, which meant headlamps would be required as I was not interested in another road run. I stopped by Richard's house around 6pm and we headed up the mountain to Monte Sano State Park. As we drove up Bankhead Parkway we quickly realized that it would be an interesting run.Visibility was quite limited due to fog. It wasn't any better when we got to the hiker's parking lot. When we got out of the car, we noticed that the drizzle had actually turned into sleet. Once we started running the South Loop trail, we also realized that almost the entire trailhead turned into an ankle deep creek. Add to that temperatures in the low 30s and we had ourselves an interesting trail run, if only for 3.5 miles. It's definitely fall season. The weather was pretty nasty, but I truly enjoyed it. We got everything trail running has to offer.
