This morning I ventured out to Lord Hill, near Monroe, WA. Lord Hill boasts a popular series of trails. The weather was (is) uncharacteristically sunny (lately, anyway), so off I went on a photo recon mission.
I was commissioned to write an article for Northwest Runner magazine about getting started in trail running. Most contributing authors shoot their own photos to accompany their articles, and I'm no different. As fate (luck) would have it, I picked the right day for the task.
I spent just over an hour out on the trails. I even mixed in some light running. Given that my body isn't used to it, I'm sure I'll be sore tomorrow. I just hope it's muscle soreness and not the usual injury-related soreness. It felt good to get out and do some trail running & power-hiking, alone on the trails.
I'm not sure which issue of the magazine will run the article. I'll post
the info here when I find out. In the meantime, here are a few of the
photos I shot at Lord Hill.
