Great Western Trail - Little Mountain

Thanks to James for showing us such a fun trail Monday. Nice runnable trail with rolling hills and great views. I actually was able to catch up to Craig once during the run. It might have been because Craig was having to run behind a porcupine, but I'll take whatever I can get. I believe this run was our biggest group yet. We had 9 people total with our very first female attending. Nice job Emily. David and I were running up the road back to the cars when a oncoming car had a deer jump right out in front of him. He swerved towards us missed the deer and was able to correct and miss us also. He didn't come all that close to us but David and I still just stood there for a minute shocked at what could have happened. I thought my heart rate was already at max but I realized it can go much higher. Look forward to next week.
