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!

Return of the Purple Tights

On New Years eve Neil showed off his new purple tights....we'll see how many decades these survive. Seven runners headed up a very icy urban trail and did the Railroad Springs loop, about 5 miles in the warmest New Year's Eve in many, many years.

Christmas 2011

Randi, Bruce, Sabrina and David made their way to Buffalo Park and headed off onto the streets of Flagstaff. Fighting a cold, Neil took this photo of the team riding the Flagstaff to Grand Canyon Stage Coach....

An Easy New Way on a Quiet Christmas Eve

Five runners - Sabrina, Susan, David, Suzanne and Bruce - tried a new route that David suggested near Boynton Canyon, and what a great suggestion it is! A little over 5 miles of gentle running that began downhill into a chilly and dark ravine, soon rising out into the light and warmth. The second half is spectacular, on a ledge against a cliff for a good half-mile, before dropping back to the start. A prayer wheel lies on a ridge near the end of the run.
