55 degrees out. partly cloudy. damp trail with some slick spots. moderate traffic.

Ran the inner/outer loop course clockwise for the first time. Finished the outer loop in 17:32, which was a bit slower than I expected since I thought I was on track for a better pace. Still beat my previous time by 3.5 minutes which is always nice.

47 degrees. wet trail, but no real traction issues, moderate traffic, sore legs. Ran the standard loop counter clockwise, then continued up to the 2nd junction and up to the top of the hill and returned to do a larger and smaller counter clockwise loop. Nice way to add some distance and extra elevation gain.

41 degrees, overcast, damp trail but no real traction issues, minimal traffic- which was nice for a Saturday afternoon. Everyone must still be out Christmas Shopping. Had leg day earlier this morning, so my legs felt like lead for the first half of the run, managed to find my rhythm during the 2nd half and finished the last 1/4 of the run pretty strong.

Ran clockwise. Cloudy day, 54 degrees, damp trail- but no major traction issues, very light traffic. Very enjoyable run, left my headphones at home which made for a nice change.

50 degrees out. Wet trail, lots of leaves, pretty slick. Saturday afternoon run- so there was a good amount of traffic. Pretty happy with my time, definitely didn't push myself since I didn't want to risk falling on the slick ground. Might have been able to hit low 16 minute time if the course was dry.

Counter clockwise run. Dry trail. Light traffic. First time back running in a while. Thought about keeping it nice and easy, but felt good and got a decent time. Beautiful sunny evening in the 70s.

33 degrees. sunny. mostly dry trail with a couple slick spots. woke up earlier than usual and was on trail while there was still frost along the edges. ran clockwise- felt really good and thought I would beat last weeks pace, guess not.

51 degrees. Overcast. Damp trail with muddy spots, but no real traction issues. Ran counter clockwise. Did much better than expected, even thought I felt out of shape. Only 49 seconds behind my PR, so I'm definitely on track to beat it this year and likely drop into a sub 15 minute run.

42 degrees, but there was no wind so it felt much better than last time. Mostly cloudy. Wet trail w/ some traction issues. 10am start = no traffic on the trail.

40 degrees and windy. Mostly dry trail. Very cold. Ran counter clockwise. There were signs in the parking lot warning of possible trail closures as crews chop down some trees, but I didn't encounter any workers on the trail. Happy with my time despite keeping a very casual pace.

80 degrees and sunny. Dry trail, light traffic. Counter Clockwise

Spent the last 2 days working on my truck and haven't been able to get out to hit the trails like I wanted to. Had just enough time this evening to squeeze in a quick run. Body was tired and sore from the gym, but I still wanted to go for a fast time now that both legs are healed. Happy with my overall time, best of the season- just over a minute off my all time PR.

Beautiful Day. Upper 70s, partly cloudy, dry trail, no traffic. Ran clockwise.

Its been a rough couple of months- first injuring my left calf, then my right. Trying to ease myself back into trail running carefully again on the Park Loop. Took is slow and steady, but still felt very out of shape.

Quick afternoon run. Upper 70s, but nice and cool under the shade of the trees. Dry Trail. Moderate traffic. Kept an easy pace to rehab my left calf. Left quad was sore from the gym this morning.

51 Degrees. Lightly sprinkling. Minimal traffic. Very wet/muddy trail.

Ran clockwise. Could have gone a little faster, but the trail was too slick. Overall, not a bad time for the start of the season...

First trail run of the season. Kept a slow pace since my right leg is still not 100%

80 Degrees. 33% Humidity. Mostly Sunny. Light/Moderate Traffic. Dry Trail

Ran counter clockwise and beat my previous PR by 42 seconds :y: !!!! I was able to run at full speed for the first time in a very long time. No leg pain and no cramping- it felt fantastic. Just a couple of months ago I would finish the last uphill section almost completely doubled over and barely moving faster than a walking pace. Now I am able to run up it at a respectable pace and start my final sprint earlier and earlier.

Ran the loop clockwise. Cloudy. 58 degrees. 62% humidity. Dry trail and only 1 other runner on the trail.

Decent run today. My right calf started feeling a little tight part way through so I slowed my pace a bit to avoid injuring myself. It got progressively worse through the run, but I was able to finish without any major pain. I should probably ease up on it for another week or two before I try another faster paced run.

65 Degrees. 59% Humidity. Partly Cloudy. Evening Run. Light traffic on trail. Ground was damp from recent rain, just a couple of mud puddles left.

Ran counter clockwise. Seems like this is the first time back out running at full strength for quite some time. I always tell myself I am going to take it slow and ease my way back into the running, but that never happens. Set off counter clockwise and set a new PR by 20 seconds (and 53 seconds faster than my best run this season)!!!! :y: I usually jot down my previous time to beat on my wrist when I set off for a run, but I didn't bother to do it today- so I beat my previous times without even having a benchmark to compete against.

Hit the First downhill section in 1:56 and hit the western side junction at 8:30.
