Ya know what's cool about running at the beach and trails? Everything. In fact, we have enjoyed the weekly beach run so much that we have decided to add a trail run to the schedule. These runs are for all fitness levels and are geared to get you in shape, or help you stay in shape, as well as prepare you for the upcoming outdoor adventures. The hill running/climbing is a must for training for the adventure/mud runs. Plus, trail running strengthens your ankles big time.
Today's Trail Run will be at Daley Ranch, from the parking lot to the water tank. This is about 2.44 miles each way and almost 600' of elevation gain. Not too bad. For extra credit, we can extend the run a few hundred yards and reach Stanley Peak (elev. 2000'). Then we head back. Should be a blast.
Parts of the trails can be rough so wear appropriate shoes. At this point the plan is to finish well before sunset. If you have concerns about returning before sunset, you will probably want to park out side the lot on the street in case the ranger locks the gate before you return.
See you out there,
