I parked at the Lodge, and first did one loop of the "Bigfoot 50K" loop. Then, I started out on the loop again but then just ran side trails as I find three loops of the 50K course kind of boring.
It was a pretty warm day out there.
|Yes, I do have awesome calves.|
I made sure I stepped into the lake first thing and ran with wet feet the entire time. We're almost at drought status here; so most of the streams were dried up. But every chance I found to get my feet wet, I dunked them. (My feet will be wet for the entire Hardrock course.)
I was keeping an eye on the time, and had to cut my course short as to get back home at noon. So I got almost 4.5 hours on the trail, running, jogging, hiking. Good time on my feet.
