This weekend I got out and joined the Arvada Triathlon Club for a portion of the Lark Half course. This was a low key event held on the Ralston Creek Trail. Distances were marked to allow runners to run any distance they chose.
I was feeling pretty good and keeping an easy pace, but decided to turn around at just over 3.5 miles. I was running by myself on the way back, but still managed to keep up a pretty decent pace. I was very surprised at how busy the Ralston Creek Trail was at 7:30 on a Saturday morning. It is a definite perk to live in an active healthy community.
One of the club members lives just off the Ralston Creek trail and was kind enough to set up an aid station with water, Gatorade and even flat coke.
