I woke up at 4:30AM and picked up Richard at 5:15AM for what was to be an easy 8 miler on the Flat Rock Connector Trail. However, when we arrived at the hikers parking lot at Monte Sano State Park, we realized that daybreak was still at least a few minutes away.

As a matter of fact, it was still pitch black and there was no way we could hit technical trails in these conditions without headlamps (which we obviously left at home thinking we'd already have daylight). So we changed our plans and headed down the park road until we entered the rather flat South Plateau Loop trail. We continued on this trail until we returned back to the top of the center of the state park and connected with the North Plateau Loop for an easy, flat and somewhat safe 5 mile loop.

I decided to enter the No Limits 5K in Decatur tomorrow morning, once again attempting to break the 20 minute mark. We shall see if I will be successful this time. I'm starting to wonder...
