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!

A-1 Mountain Run

18 runners headed up the Urban Trail and most of the group went as far as the A-1 Mountain Meadow, 9 miles out and back! We had two new runners join in the fun, Chris from Phoenix and Ian from the University of Indiana! Remarkably, there is still standing water along some of the Forest Service Roads. While I was making pretty good time on the downhill return run, I ended up late for coffee at the Seasoned Kitchen as I ran into a bunch of longtime friends, Dana, Nat (The Godfather of our Urban Trail Sytem!) and Merk (Executive Director of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Flagstaff). After spending a bit of time chatting I returned to find the gang comfortably enjoying the Seasoned Kitchen. Download today's photos!
