(Thanks to Bruce H. for the following post) Thirteen runners began heading up Schultz Creek very soon after 9:00 am this morning, because teeth chatter was starting to overwhelm chat. It only got colder, as we entered the canyon proper. Three others - used to the 5-minute grace - soon arrived and also began their 800' climb up to the ghost of Lincoln Logs. Along the way, we passed 6 apparently-more-savvy runners who ran the Shultz-Rocky Ridge loop backwards, thus saving the bone-chilling part for a faster, downhill leg. At our turn-around, we split into three groups, with some heading back the way we came, three climbing another 400', taking the Little Gnarly-Lower Brookbank-Elden Road path, and two following a rugged Jedi-Lost Burrito route.
Most folks met back at the Kick Stand for coffee & idle talk. While we didn't have access to Neil's FB password, we thought it would be a good idea for him to organize a Jingle Bell run some evening soon.

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!
