The first quarter of this year has brought many great Rockhopper run experiences. Experiences that will undoubtedly lead to fun end of year awards. USATF points for the Rockhoppers are accumulating also .
We have a competitive spirit but we all agree our group training runs where we share our friendly banter are the most fun.
Here then is a recap of this weekends group runs at Leon Creek, Hill Country State Natural Area, Mc Allister Park, and Boerne Stage road, hosted by various Rockhoppers.
Lisa Came out! As did Alex2,Mariana,Daniel,Orlando and Elda. The trail Gods showed us they still rule as Mariana took a tumble in the first quarter mile. This after joking in the parking lot about Trailrunners falling on smooth surfaces. I looked. No rock, stump, or branch. Sorry Marianna :-(. Besides a little bleeding and swelling, Marianna says she’ll survive.
We had a good group also. We had Rachel (so good to see her), Liza, Liza’s MdS pack, Splèens, Sheila, MJ, Robert, Caroline ( a gal visiting from Canada), Aash and Aash’s dog.
It was a gorgeous morning and the sun was a ball of fire when it rose. The pace was very relaxed. Liza (and her pack), Rachel and Caroline peeled off after a hour to run the hills. Not sure how many they did. On trail 7 Tanya blew past me and sending a not so subtle message on what to expect at HH 25k. Lisa and Robert headed back to the cars after 8 miles and the Spleens headed back at 12 miles. Sheila, MJ, Aash (and dog) and I finished out the 15 miles. Incidentally Aash’s name is pronounced Ash (as in the Evil Dead character…which is cool).
Great time on the trails and beautiful weather with a fun group of folks.
Mc ALLISTER PARK
