A beautiful fall day and a great route for leaf peeping. It's definitely easier to follow the route if you have it downloaded to your watch or on phone to follow the twists and turns. The first couple miles are uphill but gentle enough to run and a nice warm up. Lot of fast sections but Bear mountain at the end definitely presents a challenge if you're not ready for it. Really fun route. We both are getting our fitness back after some health and motivation issues post race so we kept it conservative at first and really just tried to have fun and stay on course. Just a note that it can definitely be busy with a lot of dogs on and off leash so be prepared for that or get out on a weekday where it would most likely have less traffic. All friendly, just something to be aware of if you're trying to put down a fast time.
