I spent most of the summer off in the Canadian and WA Cascades, so it was fun to get back to the winter trail running grounds this morning. Darren joined for the first 6mi (heal up!) and I pushed myself on the climb up Skyline+the cut and the descent down Mountain Highway. Hamstrings still were a little tight from the fast road run last weekend, but otherwise I felt pretty good. It was partly sunny and there were great views from the top of Grouse. First drops of rain fell as I was changing at the car. Couldn't have timed it better.
