Before the weekend's adventures, I wanted to post a quick shout out--and huge thank you--to Gwinnett County, Georgia's Yellow River Park trails. Chris is working outside Atlanta this week and next. Frankly, we weren't hopeful of finding good trail running this close to the city. Happily, we were wrong! The fine folks at Tri Your Best steered us 3 miles down the road to some of the most enjoyable single- and doubletrack on which we've ever run. The trails are not particularly technically or aerobically challenging, with just a few little rollers, but they are just lovely, zigging and zagging through a forest of mostly open hardwoods and southern pine. The spring flowers are in full bloom, the birdies are singing merrily, and there's been hardly anyone else on the trails when we've been out there--really a total pleasant surprise. :) We've seen deer there on most every outing, and one morning I spotted 3 piliated woodpeckers at once!
