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 ruthless trail run. The VCTR will get that heart rate & step count up right out of the "gates"...This weekday D4 trail run (which is a non-stop effort) will see some nice elevation, as I take you along what I affectionately dub my "training grounds!" Out and back route is challenging, but hard to get lost on if you're drifting off pace. 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 pace average overall 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. It is important to arrive b4 the event so we can beat the daylight back to the cars. Don't let the shorter distance FOOL YOU.

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