    great Lunch run up the MST 5.04 mi 01:01 12:03 pace

    Lunch run up the MST -- 5 miles and just under a thousand feet of climb in an hour. Worked hard until the turnaround, where I put my hand on a fallen log, panting like a dog, before doubling back. ... read more

      You really need to try and get registered for the Shut In Run. Follow Jus' Runnin' on facebook and they will announce when registration begins. If you don't register right away it will fill up and you won't get in on it. It is a cool run from the Arboretum to Mt Pisgah. Tough 18 miler. Huge elevation gain. Follows Blue Ridge Parkway. I attempted it last year but had to pull at the 15 mile mark. Weather got me. Wasn't properly prepared.

    This is the Mountain to Sea Trail. I live half a mile from this thing, and it runs forever - all the way to the ocean.

    The main idea here is this: running up mountains just to stand on top for a little while is a new sensation for me, and it is absolutely intoxicating.

    great Short lunch run up the mountain 2.6 mi 00:30 11:34 pace

    Quick lunch jaunt out to the Blue Ridge Parkway and back on the neighborhood trails. Explored a couple of side trails, but didn't follow them too far.

  14. RUN
    great MST - almost to Tanbark Ridge... 10.7 mi 02:48 15:41 pace

    2,390 feet of elevation gain made this run feel twice as hard as what I recall a 10 miler to feel like. Pleasantly battered from the waist down now, reminiscing about every sandaled footstep, every... read more

    great Lunch run in Asheville 3.75 mi 00:41 10:53 pace

    My first lunch run was more scenic than every lunch run I've ever done, combined. MST for 4 miles near the Folk Art Center, heading "downhill" this time. Good afternoon!

      I wondered when you'd be "up and running". Welcome to WNC. We will have to get together for a run and a brew. I currently have a couple of grandkids visiting so it will probably be August before I can. A fun event is the Mainstreet Mile in Waynesville August 22nd.

    great Last run on Siesta 4 mi 00:34 08:32 pace

    Fastest 4mi time ever in the company of good friends during my farewell run in Florida. Huffin' and puffin' towards the end, but I gutted it out for the strong finish.

    1000% humidity in Lunas on molten pavement. Savoring these final Floridian lunch runs. Will be in Asheville next week!
