Boston Run Trail

This evening I met my friend Steve at the Happy Days Visitor Center parking lot for a trail run. He's trying to get back into shape and regain his old form so we started off easy tonight. The plan was to do the Boston Run Trail which is a 3.1 mile loop that starts close to Rt. 303. Click Here to view the trail map.

It was pretty humid tonight but the air was somewhat cool and we both felt pretty good during and after the run. My legs have been doing really well after my 70 miler and I'm excited to find out how much I can build upon that. The main excitement from tonight's run was when I went running full speed across this short wooden bridge and forgot to remind myself that wooden bridges are always very slick when wet. I wiped out and was on my butt in a split second. Luckily when I hit the deck I didn't pull my left arm backwards too much to catch myself and only had it along my side as support. The outside of my left arm was a little sore after the run but nothing as bad as what it could've been.

Glad you are OK on your fall. I pulled on of these this year during one of the MO training runs... 1/4 mile from teh start. Boy was that a way top start the run.

Thanks.. I was down so quick that all I could do was start laughing hysterically. I remember reading about your fall at MO.
