Pretty happy with my effort today!! This was my third try. The first two attempts I took wrong turns at Melakwa Lake—last year and earlier this summer. Got it right today, though!
I had one hard fall after Melakwa Lake after the climb, which was on smoother terrain — that’s part trying to go quickly I suppose. The technical bits were a little less challenging for me today — I think my running mantra may have helped “I’m a rock ninja” :)
Thanks to all the other runners for putting up great times to shoot for.
Other details. The weather was sunny and clear with no precipitation. A month ago there were some down trees that were clear on today's run.
