I decided to run this loop twice to give myself 7 miles. Right before I started though there was a heavy rainstorm that lasted for a good 15-20 minutes. This was pretty surprising since we haven't had much rain at all this summer, but it was much needed. So, I waited in my car for the rain to let up and then off I went. Once I returned back to my car after the run I was greeted by a large yellow butterfly that landed on my car...

They finished 9th out of 30 female teams, with Tami finishing in 17:14 and Katie in 16:15. For complete results - Click Here
It was another picture perfect day... which has been the story for most of this summer so far...
For those of you considering running the YUT-C 50K this fall, here are a few more pictures that I took on the trail to give you an idea of some of the technical terrain:
On our run we also stopped by a couple construction sites in the park to check out how much progress has been made. These next 2 pictures explain the rehabilitation of the steel suspension bridge and show the current stage that the bridge is in. The entire wooden floor underneath the road on the bridge has been removed and the ornate fixtures on top of the steel arches have been removed for repair.
We also stopped to check out the progress that Mill Creek Park has made on repairing the boardwalk leading up to Lanterman's Mill. It looks like concrete is being poured in order to extend the wooden posts further into the ground to avoid erosion... so... this section of the YUT-C 50K should hopefully be completed in time for the race in September.

On our way back we stopped and ate at the Winking Lizard where we listened to Alex Bevan who was performing live. We've seen him play at a few wineries before and he is pretty enjoyable to listen to. Usually he plays a mix of slow easy listening songs on his guitar along with some upbeat party music that he is famous for in Put-in-Bay.
After leaving the Winking Lizard we walked around Hudson for a bit and stopped and had a few drinks on the patio at Luchita's Mexican Restaurant.

After leaving the restaurant, we walked next door to the Cyrus Waterfront Restaurant & Patio to get our seats for the fireworks and enjoy the view of the city. NewsChannel 5 was broadcasting their 4th of July show from here and I ended up getting on TV a few times. It ended up being a very nice evening of weather and I was able to capture some of the following photos...
The fireworks were pretty good... However, we were a little disappointed at the length of the show, as we both thought they would've lasted longer.

This run started out by going underneath Rt. 303 through this tunnel... I thought this was a pretty neat picture.
We then made our way up to the ledges and continued on the trail up to the overlook where I was able to get this photo of us.... what a view....We then continued to Kendall Lake... On the way there we saw this deer crossing the road and were surprised to find out how close we were actually able to get to it. It must of been pretty tame because I was able to stand only about 25 feet from it. Someday I promise I will jump on one of them and get a video of me riding a deer through the woods!
After running up around Kendall Hills we turned around and then headed back to our car with another nice sunset...
