Trail Run at Falls Lake

Up at 4:30am this morning to get out for a trail run. New trails and new friends made the trip worthwhile!! After watching the sun come up during our 45 minute drive to the trailhead, we met up with some awesome folks from daily mile. We set foot on the trail at 6am and got in a solid 12 miles. The weather was good, with the heat and humidity not as bad as it was earlier in the week.
I am still trying to break in my New Balance minimus Trail shoes, or should I say break my feet into the shoes! They have a thinner sole than my GoLite shoes, so technical trails with lots of rocks and roots have been rather hard on the bottom of my feet!! Of course, on today's run I managed to find every pointy rock and gnarly root on the trail, so needless to say my feet are sore!
The trail was beautiful, not that hilly, and we did six miles out and six back.
Early morning view of the lake.

Some new trail running buddies!!

Enjoy the rest of the weekend!!!


  1. Nice one Gene. I am always up for some weekend trail running in and around Raleigh as I am out on my own most of the time.

  2. William, I hope to be up that way in two weeks to run Falls Lake again. I will keep you posted, maybe we can meet up on the trail!
    Thanks for following!
