...is the forest runnable?

...most likely not this time of year I reckon. Have you run there in the spring or fall?

Bruce County has great free online (1 metre) contour data - the nature reserve looks quite promising.

I’m going to try to get out for a run there over the next couple days. Other than there, is Lindsay Tract worth it?

The BP is special.

How’s your Hank?

My Hank today looking at a banana...

I. Love. Lionshead.

I’ve run the same loop in the spring and fall and it’s spectacular. Lindsay Tract is great for mountain biking so I don’t see why you couldn’t run there?

The forest is probably runable but I wouldn’t go off trail because of the poison ivy. It was crazy rampant!!

Depending where you are, there are some decent trails at Sawmill but that might be too far...east I suppose?

Love the pic! The boys should get together and eat bananas sometime. Our HD loves fruit and he is great! Almost walking and still breaking my heart one day at a time. I’m not smart enough to post pictures on AP, unfortunately. We went canoeing today on the bay and he seems to have a second option about being in the lifejacket because he didn’t mind at all.

Are you doing Bruce Peninsula Multisport Race next weekend?

Bah!...PI.

Most likely won’t get a chance to get over there - will try in the fall though.

No - I’m not racing next weekend. I have zero AR game. I actually don’t own a legal bike for racing. I wish I did. As I age, new things/gear is more daunting than it should be - so I stick with my legs to get around. Makes no sense.

Planning to run the 34k Iroquoia Trail Test on the 18th though!

Good to see you’re good!

Do you know anyone looking for a spot in the race... Will is bailing

… I probably should too, but I can't pass up the opportunity to be publicly humiliated :-)

… especially after trash talking when I thought I could train!!! :O
