Island Lake

Fueled by perhaps the greatest breakfast/anytime condiment known to man, Nutella, I rambled out to my favorite trails @ Island Lake today for a 10 miler.

With just a few cars in the lot, I knew the trails would be empty and the near freezing temp (approx 36 degrees) would guarantee stable footing.

Deciding to run the yellow loop out to the 5 mile mark and then turn back, the trail is now marked every 1/4 with a post which can be good or bad depending on how you look at it. Good if you are counting every inch until it is over or are doing speedwork, or bad if you are only looking at the posts and not paying attention to what is in front of you.

Course completed in 1 hr 29 min today with post run Mahi Mahi tacos @ Baja Fresh. Doesn't get much better than that!!!
