The problem with Salt Fork roads are: they are all up and down.
Hmm, I thought to myself, isn't that exactly what you need to run on?
In parking in a different location, I thought I would give myself a break. Do the uphill first (this was an out and back) so then I would have the nice downhill to finish.
I parked on a secluded side camp road, and decided to run a little downhill from the vehicle, down to the lake. I knew the road would end at a "dead end" but that would give me a little flat to run on down at the lake.
We've been in a quasi drought, but I did not realize how much the lake had receded.
I was super stoked through this section. I saw such different views, being OUT in the lake. You don't get to see this from land. It was an entire different perspective, and view, just a 1/4 mile out in the lake.
It's good to have a goal event in sight again. The Ring will be nothing but humid, training in the humidity will set me up to be ready for it!
