|I miss you ol' friend|
|Dan at Apex|
I was finally reunited with my BFF last week. I could still tell you every little section that was graded, every rock that was now covered or uncovered. Even though with the trails that are opened I had to run my normal route backwards my feet still knew every step and I felt like I just casually danced up the trail. I seriously can't stop smiling, even now, thinking about how much I love to run these trails.
Aside from the fact that I love the trails at Apex and have so many amazing memories from those trails, it's the perfect training ground for me. I literally have no excuse not to run when I have to drive to the trailhead twice every day to drop off and pickup James from daycare. Falcon will still remain a weekly run, but not having to add the extra 30 min of drive time to my every day runs makes it much more manageable to get in some real miles.

Speaking of RDS Dan and I decided on our goals for the year. We decided not only would we each be running another 100 miler, but we would each race 321 miles for RDS. Our featured races will be Leadville 100 for Dan and Run Rabbit Run 100 for me. Then we'll finish out our 321 miles at the Chicago Marathon!
Week March 17 - 23
Miles Running: 43.8
Hours Hiking and Running: 8.0
