Today, I did my time on the trails. Wasn’t really in the mood. Didn’t even have that much available time. I neglected the laundry, dishes, vacuuming however, so I could get out there. In the process of increasing my weekly mileage, some runs it’s just about the doing time.
I ran past the “Old Corral.” This was a working corral when when this property was part of a gigantic ranch that the Moulton family owned.
After 4.5 miles, I ran up out of Wood Canyon, via Cholla Trail. I struggled a little with the climb, but took opportunity to STOP and take a picture looking back into the canyon.
At mile 7.5, I reached Top of the World, stopped for a quick self-portrait.
At about mile 9, I finally reached the top of Meadows Trail. Nice and sweaty, I was ready for that windy switch-back trail.
I joyfully ran down Meadows, following some mountain bikers who quickly left me in the dust.
A mile later, I was running the flat portion of Meadows back into Wood Canyon to close up the loop.
12.20 miles run doing time.
