Thursday - 15 miles - 3,200 feet EG - 02:45 - Long trail. I've been making it a point to go out and explore the wilderness areas near my home. There are so many beautiful trails and mountains within 1-2 hours of our house and I've just been loving it. This week I ran up to Flapjack Lakes in Olympic National Forest. There are pictures below if you're interested.
I'm still having trouble with that right ankle on the trails. I get shooting pain that subsides but remains dull even if I just step on a small rock wrong. It's been happening ever since I rolled it back in Ashland. The good news is it doesn't hurt on the roads.
