The official first of day of Fall and I kicked it off with a run up Barlow Creek Road after work for 2.5 miles with a round trip of 5 miles and 650 feet of climbing. Barlow is nicely situated 6.5 miles North of Rico and makes for a nice stop on the way home. I enjoy running at times this time of year when the biking time is limited. The legs felt tired as I have not rested much in the past few weeks. I wanted to test the new Solomon XA Pro 3D Ultra Goretex runners out. They feel pretty good and they are nice and warm. They should be nice this winter when I'm out running in the snow and snowshoe running.
View looking down Barlow toward the Lizard Head Peak area. Not sure what peak this is.
The new runners. Kevlar quicklace tensioning system is a nice feature.
