Welcome Spring!

Matt K. came up with the perfect way to welcome spring… a three mile trail run around the base of Tiger Mountain!

It was a lovely day of sunshine and cool temperatures, perfect for a run! The group stayed together well and I got to learn about the developing trail run activities program in the Mountaineers.

At the end, after Matt and his lead-mentor debriefed, we went up Cable Line Trail to the tune of 400-500 feet of elevation gain (because how else do you celebrate a good run except for going uphill?!) before turning around before it got dark–but not without a sweaty selfie first!

I’ve reached a point where the prospect of three miles seems almost easy to me. I never thought I’d consider myself a runner. What a blessing this day has been! Welcome spring, I can’t wait to see where the season takes me!

To follow our trail…
