Recovering OTC'ers!

 As if I needed to tell you, Wildflower gave us a big I-told-you-so on the importance of trail runs in a solid training program. Our very own Charlie Keen credited his podium-crushing performance this weekend to his trail escapades. From his ESPN interview: "...I owe it all to my uncompromising training on the dirt hills...and to my fans." 

 So, there you have it kids, I couldn't have said it better myself, trail runs!

 This week we're doing a nice recovery loop at Roberts, which while relatively small, is nicely connected to our other favorite parks nearby. If you're in no mood to recover though, there will be some other badass options for you.  We'll be doing the Graham-West Ridge-Dunn loop for about 3 miles so you'll have plenty of time to finish before dark. On the Graham section, there will be a couple of short hills which you can walk if you're not feeling it. From there, we'll take the forgiving and nurturing rollers of West Ridge and Dunn. You'll fall in love with trails all over again, I tell ya.

 You know the routine: we meet at 6:15PM and run at 6:30. Done by 7:30
 Roberts charges for parking so we'll be meeting about 150 yards outside the entrance, across the road on Skyline Blvd right by the Big Trees Trail parking area (Redwood Glen Trailhead on the map). Please let me know if you can't find it, I'll be paying attention to my cellphone.,-122.1771581,18.33z/data=!4m13!1m7!3m6!1s0x808f87d6663b7fe3:0x47d5343578c3992!2sBig+Trees+Trail,+Oakland,+CA+94611!3b1!8m2!3d37.813988!4d-122.1767888!3m4!1s0x808f87d666fe098f:0xdff7bc00dd9772dd!8m2!3d37.8139966!4d-122.1769327
