New Year, New Route



I created a new 22 mile route at the beginning of the year, but due to weather, being out of town and not feeling well we didn't get to run the new route until beginning of February. It was the perfect weekend to run our longest run of the year, since neither of us had anywhere we had to be on Saturday.

We decided that we would try to do the all trail challenge this year, where we run every trail in Forest Park in 2018. This route touched on several trails that we rarely run: Firelane 8, 9, and 10. Firelane 9 is especially nasty and steep and not recommended on a muddy day. This is definitely a good route if you are training for a race with some good climbs.

We had fun taking selfies with all the Firelane signs.
