post about the 63 mile day where I ran the Columbus Running Company's Find Your Limit Virtual Mile Challenge. I had to run one mile every 15 minutes from 6AM until 9PM to see who could last the entire time. 6 of us made it to the end without dropping out and they sent a thank you card so I made that into a finishers award with my other race medals. It is interesting that some of the most challenging races and events that I have done have the smallest awards. I wanted something to hang up for the memories of the event.
Lifeline of Ohio's Dash for Donation 5k virtual run. So I got together with Mugsy for a fun promo shoot. Then I went home and had lunch with the family before my wife and kids went up to Cleveland for the night because Dawn was getting together with one of her best friends. I stayed home, packed up my running gear, and went to bed early for a big Saturday run.
Here is the start of the backpack trail. I heard good things about this park, but I REALLY fell in love with this state park and it is likely my new favorite. It is one of the most remote parks in the state, but they offer some things that you can't find anywhere else. Time to hit the trails! We were tackling the south loop and wilderness trail.
No fog over the lake. One last stop at a "restroom" because we were not going to find any more while out in the woods.
One spot that did not have a cistern was campsite 6. It is one of the most remote campsites in the state. No cistern water, just a beautiful hemlock grove next to a stream that flows nearly all year long. We didn't stay here long, but had one more ridge to cross then down to the next stream. We cut off of the backpack trail and went out on the wilderness trail. The new trail does not allow motorized vehicles or any mechanical devices to clear the trail. So the woods, as nature intended, with only hand tools allowed to be used to clear any downed trees.
