I headed over to the Happy Days Visitor Center during the middle of the day and ended up meeting two other runners that were also starting from there. Ironically, both of their names were Brian too. I thought that was pretty funny. We ended up running over to the Pine Grove loop and then over to Kendall Hills, before finishing up with 9 miles. It was a great day to be outside – mid 50’s and warm sunshine. Trails were very muddy in spots though. Hopefully the warm up at the end of next week will dry things up.
After my run I met my friend Bob and his son Shamus for some hiking in the ledges area. Here’s a picture of Shamus crossing a stream.
