    good Hub Mashup 8.28 mi 01:45 12:39 pace

    4 trails and two dirt jeep roads formed this route tru the hub trail network. Didn't run into that same cyclist again, but had an interesting encounter with two mountain trail bikers (cyclists... read more

    great Another bizarre trail meetup! 3.1 mi 00:36 11:36 pace

    Too bizarre! That labyrinth of trails I ran in yesterday, nearly crashing with a mountain biker – the only one in the entire 60 mile maze – I just bumped into him again on today's short run!

      The real question, Mike K, is "what are the odds of me buying a lotto ticket?" I think I have purchased two in my entire life. I'm not much of a gambler. :-)

      Pretty funny, Pierre and Mike. Although it just occurred to me… I'm pretty sure that if two people both have the deluxe version (paid) of Strava.com, you can actually get real time information about where your friends are during their workout. But since I don't know who the hell this guy is, and I don't have the paid version of Strava.com… Maybe it's simply time to buy a lotto ticket after all

    That frickin' tree branch cost me $400 in dental work back in 2013. First time running these trails in VFF shoes, so I was carefully watching the ground as I ran through the rocky downhill out... read more

      Mike D – the tree made an impression on my head, and it did ship one tooth. The expensive part was it cracking a veneer. Even going across the border to Mexico to get it fixed, it was still $350 for that one tooth. The hidden cost of trail running, right? ;-)

      Barefoot – I have to admit, every time I have run past that branch, I keep thinking that I wish I had a nice florescent can of paint with me, or some florescent streamers I can hang from it. I've heard that it's knocked a couple of bicyclists off their perch as well.

    most creeks are pretty much dried up right now, but this creek still had a little bit trickling through. A nice shady spot along the trail.

    the trail sometimes opened up to give me a nice view like this one.

      One nice thing about the trails in the hub, Tina, is that they aren't destination-oriented but fun-oriented. So even when there are sturdy uphill sections like this, they don't go on forever. The trails are well designed for undulation, scenery changes, lots of turns. A whole lot of fun to run

    The trail labyrinth in the hills west of town is ridiculously expansive and often confusing. It's a 60-mile interconnected network of trails, some as short as half a mile, with some up to as m... read more

    The terrain of my dawn run in the desert. You can barely make out the trail on the left side wending inward toward the sun/horizon.

      Thanks, David. It's very different than the treesy mountains I normally play in up above 5000 feet elevation (this is between 1000 & 3000 feet I think), but I find that the desert has a striking beauty all its own

    Left the mountain in the dark so i could reach this desert trail's trailhead just as dawn arrived at 6:20am. Timed the drive perfectly -- important because i had a 7:30am doc appointment in Pa... read more
