Thu, Feb 24 2022 - Thursday Morning Semi-Fitness Hike at Island Ford (View Original Event Details)|
The weather was warm enough to for shorts and sweat! We showed little mercy as we kept up a fast pace to cover 5.5 miles in 2 hours (including several water/catch-up breaks). Rather than deal with that large fallen tree on the lollipop stem, we turned around there and just added some mileage in the park. Mud seems to have filled the hole a bit, so it doesn't look quite as challenging to cross now . . . but with a few newer members, I thought it best to avoid the trench today.
Congratulations to Jennifer, Neil, and Michelle for all three getting up the warm-up hill first. Neil and Jennifer have gotten strong with their training for and trip to Patagonia! Michelle just IS strong!
Thanks to Lee for his photo additions to the album! Always much appreciated. ~ Joyce
