It was my standard Friday off. I’d run hills on Wednesday and was still achy from that. Then I did a fast four late last night and pushed myself with some matched time on the bike… and I was really still achy from that. So, I set off to do a bit of an adventure run. Down into the valley, a short stop for some photos, and another short stop to chat with the construction worker who was monitoring the new trail installation on our favourite roller coaster trails: that’s right… they are gone, folks. I climbed up through some off-road trails back to the neighborhood and felt the ache a little more, resulting in a lazy little adventure of a little more than five klicks. Luckily, no wildlife.
