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!

Beaver Creek/Parents Weekend

Both Janie and Heather's parents joined 13 runners and headed up to the Beaver Creek pools. While the day started out chilly in Flagstaff, it was very pleasant in the friendly confines of Beaver Creek. Tony, Chris and I all wondered if our calves would create problems. For me, this is the run where my calf muscles snapped last year, leading to a frustrating year of running. Luckily, we all survived.

No one was brave enough to take the Beaver Creek polar bear challenge, so we just let the dogs show us up (photos posted above are from last year's run). Heather's dad successfully negotiated the rocky trails, feeling much more at home than on previous visits. We all returned to Tony's for coffee and teas and enjoyed watching the holiday shoppers bustle through the Seasoned Kitchen.

  1. Roanoke, VA runner looking for some great trail runs that take in both beautiful pine forests as well as canyon running. I'm trying to get a fellow runner and our wives to put together a trip so we could run and they ( non-runners) could shop and enjoy the scenery. It seems Flafstaff would make a great destination. Would appreciate your thoughts. Can be reached at ralph.henderson@sonoco.com. thanks
