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!

Jim Thompson Trail

It was a gorgeous morning to get out of Flagstaff and head for the warmer climes of the Jim Thompson Trail, a quick 35 minute trip south to Sedona. We were most pleased to be join by five Sedona runners today, a new record! While we didn't all start at the same time, we all ended up together. It was also great day for the dogs as they almost outnumbered the runners! We had an extra long coffee break at the Raven as no one wanted to leave the warmth of Sedona and hit the weekend snowplay traffic congestion. Thanks to a heads up cell call from Chris, Neil and Rhi enjoyed a trip on the back roads to avoid a jam packed Milton Road and sneak home up Switzer Canyon! Ah, winter in Flag!

New Year's Day 2010

Eight runners rang in the New Year by running north on the snowy west side urban trail. The trail was well packed from the Middle School up until we climbed above Coconino Estates. From there we simply ran the snow packed roads enjoying the spectacular views of the Peaks. We then enjoyed coffees at the Kickstand! A great kickoff for the new year!
