RUN FAR ENOUGH.............
Most people never run far enough on their first wind to find out they've got a second. Give your dreams all you've got and you'll be amazed at the energy that comes out of you.

Saturday was another awesome day of exploring. I had planned on taking a old trail that the park wants to reopen. Just wanted to see what kind of work needs to be done on it. It's called the Welsh creek trail. It connects with Flag hill and goes down to Welsh creek road.
Jerry joined us just to Sunol at we met up with Julia who was going to do a short 2.5 hour run with us. Me and Mike would run the full 30 miles.
The weather was perfect and warm.

The welsh creek trail was amazing. It is now my favorite single track in Sunol. It's 2 miles of pure bliss. The trail is obviously other peoples favorite trail. The trail has not been on the maps in at least 9 years. But you can tell it's traveled on quite a bit. It is only hard to follow in 3 places. There are the old metal trail arrows that point the direction to go. There are several down trees that need to be removed but I hardly doubt it would take very long to get it ready to open for public use.

They are already using it. There was a trail project planned but somehow got cancelled. I am going to talk to ranger Neil and get a group of us Ultrarunners who need trail work to do work on it.
It is on the new map/permit so check out that trail if you have time. I am going to do a loop of it in a couple weeks with Maguires peak loop. It will be a 40 mile run I think.
