Dripping Rock Trail

With the kids safely deposited @ gparents for approx 30 hrs, Dirrty Girl and I headed down to Cbus to hangout with Missile and Lightning.

Located just outside Cbus, the Dripping Rock Trail is a 2.5 mile wide open loop part of the Highbanks Metropark (free entry!) system. You are either going up or down and Lightning and I make quick work of 2 loops as we discussed marathon training plans for either Flying Pig or Cleveland next year. If Lightning gets it in gear, and trains for either, hopefully I can join him in his pursuit of marathon glory and it can be a stop on an idea I have been toying with for 08.

Details to follow......

Hey, I have my schedule cleared for the Hell Fat Ass so I'm there. I'm pasting the information below if you are interested in running part or all of the run.

On a side note, the latest issue of Ultrarunning Magazine has all the race results from the North Country Trail Run. I'd be glad to make a copy for you if you don't have a subscription. Send me an email if you are interested (brian at thomaswallace dot org).
