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!

West Side Street Run

As I showed up at Thorpe Park at 8:55, I wondered is this the right place for the run this morning? I drove home, checked natra.org and indeed it was. I couldn't imagine a run without a couple of companions and when I returned, sure enough, there was Bruce, Mackenzie and Annika. We decided to stick to the streets after twisting our ankles on a short section of the snow packed Urban Trail. So we hit the streets following Annika the entire way. With flurries floating in the air, we anticipated that the big storm was just beginning to arrive. As we drove over to the Kickstand for coffee, we noticed a half dozen runners who also were trying to sneak in a run before the storm. In all, a nice 4.5 mile run to kick off what promises to be a weekend full of cross country skiing!
