First Trail Run of the Year

Meadowlily Bridge

I decided to kick off the running season with a trail run through Meadowlily Woods.

Area Floods

It rained heavily for two days though, so when I got there, I decided that it might be best to stick to the paved trail.

This sign warned me that the area is subject to flooding. It still thought the paved trail would be better than the one through the bush.

As you can see, I was wrong. I have never seen the river this high. There was absolutely no way around it. This wasn’t a puddle. It was the river encompassing the entire trail.

So I turned around, and went through the nature part of the trail. There were a few wet sections, but I was able to get a three kilometer run in quite nicely.

Wide and High River

It was an interesting start to my new season of running.

It’s going to be a little different this year. I no longer have data on my phone (I had to cut some expenses) so I won’t be able to track my runs as easily as I did last year. I really loved using that app too.

I do hope to find and document some new running spots for this blog though. So stay tuned for that.

Happy Running!
