READ THIS FULL write up:
some trail run with some reallllly fast hiking,
it's a leg & lung shredding event!
It's 10k the HARD WAY!

Join me as we "LIGHT" up the trails with some trail run mixed with some seriously fast hiking. The VCTR will get that heart rate & step count up right out of the gate...This week day D4 trail run (which is just as much uphill running as it is fast hiking) will see some nice elevation, as I take you along what I affectionately dub my "training grounds!" We might hit a coulple of the same paths twice but never in the same direction. This is NOT a "check out the scenery" event. Conditions have been a little sloppy out there, expect some loose terrain - trekking poles are always advised. 

This FAST hike/trail run is along various trails at Vickery Creek CRNRA (in a top secret special direction) there are no formal stops planned. The average overall pace will be in the sub 14 minute/mile pace (or quicker). So, if you haven't been on any FAST AOC D4 hikes recently you're probably not going to like this hike - saying it's fast is an undestatement. If I see you falling back pretty far within the first mile (or two) I will ask you to try again after a few months...Safety first, respect to the others second.

Rain or Shine...althought I prefer the latter.
