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!

Why Did the Tarantula Cross the Trail?

With the trail racing season finally behind us, we had 15 runners hit the Campbell Mesa outer loop. We might have had more, but some may have been discouraged as a result of yesterday's "snowed under" post. While most of the group was feeling spry, Neil took his time and found out the answer to "Why did the tarantula cross the trail?" Abe later pointed out that he was just trying to hook up with a female. After a 5 minute photo shoot with the tarantula, Neil arrived back a the parking lot to find everyone awaiting his safe return. We rehydrated at Wildflower Bread Company as Ellie kept us all entertained. Next week, Aspen Corner and the Arizona Trail to Bismarck Lake!

Urban Trail Fall Foliage

 David dressed for fall.

While it was a small turnout for our annual post-Soulstice Saturday group run, the Neil, Rob, Chris, David, and Bruce immersed themselves in the magical fall foliage along the Flagstaff Urban Trail System and the Flagstaff Loop Trail. Afterwards the gang hit the kickstand where they encountered Mackenzie and Clare who had done the exact same run 30 minutes earlier. Next week Campbell Mesa!
