At some point it was time to take a break from my distance pavement running & have a little fun on the trails. Today was an Ulla day but I didn't have much time to get in a long hike today, so I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to get in a good run AND try out a trail in the Rattlesnake I've been eying up for a long time.
A 3 mile long out-and-back style trail, the Woods Gulch trail packs in an 800 foot gain in a mile and a half, only to turn around at the top and run straight back downhill.
Only 73 more days till the Missoula Marathon. I'm not sure I'll be completely ready for this race, but I'm mentally ready to run her now.
