trail running
18 hours ago

I ran the trail today in 4 hours. It was amazing! started at Reid's Gap just as many did. I've run a portion of this trail before, but wanted to knock out the whole loop today. It has very technical terrain and even more so with the snow and some icy spots left from other people packing the snow down - so down hill traveling was very slow. I kept going past the Mau-Har Trail and followed the AT down to the highway (not sure how long that leg was) and the turned around and went back up, this time turning onto the Mau-Har trail. I was not expecting that portion to be as difficult as it was...very steep most of the way up and I was already tired. It was very refreshing to complete the loop and get back to the car by the end!
