Mon - 1hr/ 7m/ 600' - Monbo Trail - A sticky, hot run in LNSP. My body felt horrible gastrointestinally and it was kind of a struggle to keep running but I did and promptly felt worse afterward. Nothing a jump in the lake and some Maalox can't fix I guess.
Tues - 75min/ 7.5m/ 2200' - South Mountains - Since the days have grown longer and it had rained much of the day, keeping the temperatures relatively low, but still quite humid, I decided to drive a little extra today to go get a run in at South Mountains State Park. The route today was: H.Q., Possum, Horseridge, Sawtooth, Chestnut Knob. The rain held off and the sun poked out briefly to reveal some beautiful views of the Jacob Fork River Gorge. The park isn't too far from my house, considering how far I have to drive to get anywhere else to run around here, so I might make it a bi-weekly affair from now on to visit the state's largest park.
