We met at Clear Creek Metro Park. Here, Steve O showing off his new hiking boots. Steve was joined by Margarita Rick for the hike....
....with Mark c, John Swope and I for the trail run. However, John was 15 minutes late. I said no problem but after 15 minutes, Mark C called John and announced it would be another 15 minute delay....I lept at the opportunity not to have to keep pace with the Usain Bolt of trail running and informed Mark I was going to head out on my own. Mark planned a 10 mile run and I opted for something less. Steve and Rick had already headed out at 11:00 and I followed at about 11:20. Headed west on Clear Creek Road before heading up the Hemlock Trail, a brute of a mostly uphill 1.5 miles. At the Chestnut Trail, I went left and soon caught up with Steve and Rick. Kept going around that loop and decided to do it again, hoping to overtake M and R again, and did. Walked with them for awhile talking about "things" while picking up the Cemetery Ridge Trail. Began to get chilled so left them and after 8 miles, arrived back at the parking lot. That was good enough for me. On Sunday, spent a couple of hours cross country skiing at Infirmary Mound Park in Licking County but must be doing something wrong as while I enjoyed the time out in the woods and fields, didn't feel like I had done much cardio-wise. Still can't figure out why people say x-country skiing is a great cardio workout. Must be doing something wrong. Oh, the blog will be on the move late this week. Had enough of this winter weather and the blog is going so
Mark is a long-time cyclist who enjoys poking fun at himself but most especially at his friends. No nicknames or comments are intended to offend, accept them in the humor they are intended.
