READ THIS FULL write up:
a trail run with very lil fast hiking, it's a leg & lung shredding event! It's 5k the HARD WAY! 

Join me as we light up the trails with a trail run mixed with some seriously fast hiking. The VCTR will get that heart rate & step count up right out of the "gates"...This week day D3 trail run (which is more running than 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 trail run (again with little to no hiking) 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 11 minute/mile pace (or quicker). So, if you haven't been on any of my FAST AOC events recently you're probably not going to like this one - saying it's hard is an undestatement. If I see you falling back pretty far within the first turn (or two) I will ask you to try again after a few months...Safety first, respect to the others second.

Since this is a shorter than usual run for me/us we'll be warming up as we approach the bridge to the park - it's then when we'll start counting distance, and we'll conclude back at the bridge - and cool down from there back up to the cars. Don't let the shorter distance FOOL YOU.

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