Trail Running is whole different beast!
What gorgeous spring weather we've had this week! Absolutely A-Maz-Ing!!!! My ultra-buddy sent me a few links that she found about trails up behind our houses. Mostly, wildlife access (hunting) trails....but hey, you take what you can get. We live on a hill and there is forest behind...you know, the kind that tucks in power lines and cell towers. Whatever, apparantly it is loaded with trails and I got excited to check it out. Come join me as I run the slowest, hardest 5 miles of my life!

|Nice wide trail...happy|

I was a hot, sweaty, tired mess when I finished, but it was the most fun I've had in a long time!
Clearly, this 50K I have signed up for is going to be a slow going affair.....my fastest mile was 12 minutes & my slowest was 20 minutes! Now, I know I lost a lot of time having to stop and consult my map, but still....wow!
So, all you trail runners out there: Any suggestions, recommendations?
Are there apps that map with satellite views and show your current route overlaid as you go? I used the regular map function to locate myself and then the wildlife management service map on safari at the same time. having one that would show both at the same time would make life easier.
