This post is going to be a little bit different...
On Easter morning, I stopped by the Appalachian Trail on the way to my parent's house to get a training run in for the Charlie Horse Half Marathon. When I was done running, I still had a little bit of a drive until I got to their house, so I recorded my thoughts about my run on my mp3 player so I would remember them for when I wrote a post later on.
Well, after listening to my notes, I decided to do something different. Instead of actually writing out my thoughts, here is the recording of my notes! Is this a pod cast? A car cast? I run cast? A voice cast? I don't know what to call it, but it is the 6 minute version of how my run went!
Here is the short version in case you don't feel like listening to all of that...
Terrain: Part technical/rocky, part rolling and flat
Miles: 6:09 miles @ 10:49
Knee: Pretty good
Bathroom Stops: 1
And here are the pictures...
The beginning was rocky! I was not expecting that...
Always follow the white blazes.
The picture does not capture the beauty!
Much of the trail going south is single track but it was wider when I went north.
I didn't make it to any of these destinations today but I have before.
Cool walking bridge over the highway.
A parking lot full of cars always makes me feel safe!
This was a HARD run!
Do not let me average pace fool you. It was an effort.
Have you ever run on the Appalachian Trail?
I may do more voice blog type things. What do you think I should call them?
