I was looking for a good reason to run further than I have before, and the Foothills Trail was the answer. An adventure through the laurel woods, views of lakes and waterfalls, good crew access except for the 30-mile section (each way), beautiful trail, an excellent challenge. I had a few minor issues but dealt with them with the help of my supercrew (husband) John - thank you John!! I'm quite honestly surprised at how well it went. And how we hit a perfect weather window, in between not-at-all-ideal conditions. Very lucky! And grateful for the chance to run this route.
