me and my creaky knees
gpx track, use at your own risk: Black Diamond Recreational Area
I hike. My knees tell me to do so. But occasionally my lungs tell me to run. I am trying to improve my lung capacity so I do run, I like running, I really do…always have. My arthritic knees, not so much. But still I run sometimes. Which wins, the knees or the asthma?
I was down in the Auburn area visiting my son and my grandchildren!?! Yes, I have them. Four apparently and they are all teenagers. I like to move, I don’t feel right if I don’t move on a regular basis. I also don’t sleep much. I got up today and went for a run while the teen people slept. I had checked out the trail parking for the Black Diamond Recreational Area so today I went and checked out the trails. This area is not a place you can get a lot of distance easily but by winding in and out of trails/roads I was able to get four miles. There was a lot of doubling back, I should have planned my route in advance, I do have trail maps after all (maps).
It was a good run regardless, there was a mix of graveled road and mountain bike trail. I was first at the parking and did not see anyone else until I got back to parking, then there were 5 other cars there. I need to find a better unpaved running area around this area for in the future where I can get distance.
