Tanglewood | Red Trail | First Attempt

I’ve been looking forward to having a reason to go out and do some hard running. The Tanglewood, Run For The Hills! event gave me just such a reason.

Red Trail

The view on my first attempt at the Red Trail.

I’ve run the red trail at Tanglewood a lot. I love it. It has all of the different kinds of terrain you’d want on a trail run.

I’ve never given the trail a good hard effort the whole way around. This was a fun and exciting new twist on my favorite routes.

I am planning to give this run a few attempts and see how good I can get at it.

Attempt #1

Watch the trail fly by along the Red Trail

I started off this run at a moderate pace. There is a little climbing to do in the middle and one big climb at the end. The plan was to save energy for the climbing.

Turned out I didn’t have as much energy as I thought I would for the final long climb.

Next time I will try to run harder before I get to the final climb and just try to hang on from there.
