Just Running Along… East Fork trail run…

Sticking with the current running theme, spent some time at East Fork with a friend running in the rain this evening. Typical fall weather on the menu; rain, overcast, chilly… perfect for a trail run. The original plan was to dust off the Surly and get a nice fall ride in, but since it had rained for most of the day, the New Balance Minimus came out to play instead.

We decided to run the middle section of the MTB trail, which as you can see in the blurry photo it was completely covered in wet leaves, which in turn caused me to bust my ass in a slightly off camber section. After the trail check to my knee, it gave me a moment to slow down and really look around while running, and basically see things off of the trail that I have never seen before. I will say it kinda blew my mind as to what I have been missing with my mountain bike tunnel vision, it was definitely nice to slow down a bit and take it all in.

Just keep running…

Just Riding Along… Back to trail basics.

Lately, I have called the Troll into tail duty, which has been an absolute blast. This bike rolls so smoothly in the woods that I am having a hard time with the thought of returning it to the road. Anyway, the busy schedules of two people has finally come together, so I can now introduce my friend Eric to the wonderful sport of mountain biking. Good times indeed.


Eric is a shapeshifter…


Nice scenery off of the Lake Trail.

Big thanks to CORA for the new trail addition, which makes a great trail even better. Go ride it!

Just keep spinning…
