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!

3rd Annual Lap the Leprechaun!

 Our 3rd Annual Free Lap the Leprechaun brought out 30 runners and 3 dogs as we celebrated Saint Patrick's Day with a 3 mile run in Buffalo Park. Without a leprechaun this year, I'm happy to report that no one got pinched! The one new rule this year was to introduce yourself to someone you didn't know, so lots of new friends were made! Since some ran longer, collectively the group put in another 100 miles in Buffalo Park! Happy Saint Patrick's Day to all.

Chuckwagon/Gunslinger March Madness

A record Sedona turnout with 26 NATRA runners making the Gunslinger/Chuckwagon lollipop run. Somehow all 26 made it back to the trailhead with variations, wrong turns, and spills, leading to at least 7 to 9 miles of rugged trail running. I even tried to make a duathlon out of it by sliping into a very wet, Dry Creek. We also had a record 4 runners from Sedona join us!

 Afterwards NATRA relocated to their "patio" by Whole Foods to layout in the sun and rehydrate.
