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!

Sunset/Soulstice Sprint Course

Finally, a weekend with no events! I had anxiously awaited this Saturday morning run for weeks as I do every year after the end of the Summer Series. I raced out of the house and got to the trailhead...but no one was there...hmmm. Were we doing Kendrick? Well, I was a bit too excited and had gotten to the trailhead about 10 minutes early. Mackenzie, Caleb and Eric joined in as part of their long runs. Everyone else eventually showed and we had 15 runners ready to take on the hill. With a chilly, gusty wind, it seemed like Soulstice had arrived, reminding us of race day. The course was pretty dusty, but the winds helped push us up the hill. Amazingly, the spring water flowed just above the Lincoln Logs. We ran into Chris Grove donning his broken wrist and pom pom bike handles. Back at the trailhead Tony had pumpkin chocolate chip muffins awaing us before our trip down to the Seasoned Kitchen for iced lattes! Downtown we got great news from Rob that Jill was doing well after her first week of Chemo! For updates visit Rob and Jill's blog. Download photos from today's run.
