  • Halo Air Conditioning Run

    The wind on the return trip led Chad to scream as he approached me, “This is like a whole new sport!” The stay on the trail game. I had a ball. I think the entire run was on good single track, and we had it entirely to ourselves! I wonder why? image This outing is…

  • South Meadows Trail Loop

    I explore another Reno trail for my run today that winds through the neighborhood wetlands between South Meadows and Damonte Ranch parkways.

  • Evans / Keystone Canyon Loop Run

Today the recent rain makes everything smell fresh, and the clouds keep me cool and promise more. Cloudy Keystone…
