[Willow Glen-Los Gatos Creek Trail] Early Morning Run

  • Jul 14, 2014 · 5:30 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Early morning start for folks who want to get their run in before work.

Jump start your day with some dedicated and friendly runners!

We will start at the parking lot of Blackford Elementary School and get on the Los Gatos Creek trail running to Campbell towards Los Gatos.

We make a couple of stops for water and take a little walk break in the middle.

It's an easy straight trail so you can't get lost.

The run will be 6 miles, but one can run further or less as desired.

We have a special procedure for these early morning runs. It is meant to help insure that no one drags themselves out of bed only to be left alone to run. (for safety reasons too)

Goes as follows:

  • Please RSVP day/night before. (if you don't the meetup will likely be cancelled or I will forget to check back in the morning)
  • Confirm that you are joining the run no later than 5:30 AM. Two ways to confirm:
    • meetup in the morning, or change your rsvp.
    • text me in the morning to confirm. [masked]-1645.

If you do not confirm by one of those two means, then I will expect that you will not be joining and others can adjust their plans accordingly.

It's very rewarding to be finishing your run before the day gets going. It's a bit tough to get used to at first, but soon you may find yourself looking forward to it. It makes for a great day, so come out and join us!

      I am just getting back from two weeks off, so I'll be slow. Usually we run about a 9-10 min/mile pace. Some peeps are faster, some slower.
