About NATRA Blog

This page is meant for folks to post their thoughts on the Saturday group run. I (Neil) will post a blurb about who showed up and where it was held. From there, I hope that other runners will share their thoughts since we often have different experiences on the same run. Enjoy!

Observatory Mesa Run

On a cold, blustery morning with pesky snow showers, 20 runners braved the hills of Observatory Mesa. This run always amazes me as no matter what the conditions, we can always count on about 20 runners showing up. I'd bet if we tracked the largest tournouts during our eight years, 5 of the top ten would be for this tough Observatory Mesa. It certainly is not the most scenic run we do, however, the convenient location must be the draw as no other run is closer to the coffeeshops! The three Daves, Robert and the Running Bob, Bruce, Brian, Doug, Josh, Tony, Steve, Eric, Neil, Sara, Heather, Rhiannon, Mackenzie, Jessie, Susan, Shea and dogs Petzl, Dharma, Bob and Annika fought the hills and chills all to return to the Seasoned Kitchen for Tony's freshly baked Sweet Potato Muffins and coffee. David McKee broke out Pennington's finest Kahlua and the fun began!
