Saturday AM was spent running a 10k loop in Patapsco State Park. It was a chilly 32 degrees when we started. Hello...spring? you there?!
I was able to use this iPhone application - Trail Guru - which tracked our distance, pace, stopped time, elevation, and other stuff as we ran. Kind of a pain to run with my phone, but since I was wearing a jacket - it fit nicely in one of the zipper pockets.
- Mileage: 6.17 (.03 away from the full 10k, but I am a rounder)
- Time: 1hr,5mins that includes 2 mins stopped time.
Around 5 miles, we stopped to admire this beautiful stream.
Then, we walked over this swinging bridge before running the mile back to our starting point.
Near our car, Kevin spotted a huge set of old stairs to explore, so up we went. I was a tad freaked out because the steps looked overgrown and creepy, plus they were reeeally stEEp.
When we got to the top, there was a large flat area, full of bricks and stones. Must have been the remnants of an old building - maybe a mansion. I wished that Doc and Marty would show up and take me for a quick ride back to check it out. ;)
I thought this piece looked cool and regret not snagging it.
There is so much more I need to fill you in on - namely, my first mountain bike race (!!), but I didn't get a chance to download the pics yet. Sorry!
I will say that today is definitely a REST DAY for me. My muscles are currently screaming at me...asking me why I would think they were ready for a mountain bike race after only going out for one ride prior. Clearly, I am a newbie to this mountain bike racing stuff. More on that later.
Try to enjoy your Monday and I hope to catch up on all of your blogs as soon as possible!
