Trail Running with Denise & Dad

A couple of days after running the Cleveland Marathon, Denise and I took my dad out for a 5 mile trail run.  He’s done this particular trail with my sister about a year ago.  So, it’s been awhile since he’s hit the trails.  For a 73 year old youngster, he did awesome!  It was so much fun!

I felt like such a kid running trails!  As you can see in the video, the kid in my dad came out as well. :)  I plan on mixing in trails in my training and then I’d like to do a 25K trail race in the fall.

Denise and I enjoyed spending some special time with my dad.  It was so cool that he’d hang out with us.  Cardio is not his favorite thing.  He’d rather pump iron anytime.  This was definitely one of the highlights of my trip to Cleveland.

We ran at the Everett Road Covered Bridge in Peninsula, OH which is near Akron.  Beautiful hilly location… I loved it!
