Went on vacation to New Mexico and got to run two times along the Rio Grande River’s bosque area w/ Charlie while we were there. The first time was a combination of loops on a flat trail and going up and down the ridge to the south; the second time we stuck just to the loops. Very pleasant run, although being even at just 5000 feet definitely made a real difference!

Catching up, here! Emma, Donna, Laura, and I ran a route that Emma mapped out on Saturday; we started at Iwo Jima, headed into Georgetown and then through Glover Archibold Park. This part was a lot of trail running, which slowed us down a great deal because huge storms had knocked branches and (at one point) an entire tree onto the trail. Fortunately we were able to crawl over the tree, and we continued, but it was certainly quite interesting. Eventually we exited near the Cathedral, then headed back through Mass Ave, Rock Creek, and then Memorial Bridge. Laura was slowing down a bit towards the end, and I hung back with her—it had been a while since either of us had run a 9-miler.
