Time for some long O at Clinton. I dug up an old (2010?) 10K course. My plan was to run the whole thing in about 2.5 hours.
Started from a different location because the dump station was constantly in use. Also, decided to skip 1-3 because 1) the campground was filled and 2) it didn't look fun.
Had to stay on trails and avoid the woods and grass today (too early in the season). It was warm and sunny and the leaves were falling like crazy. I only saw 2 mountain bikers the whole time I was out.
I discovered early on that I had no oomph today, so this was going to be a slow slog rather a running attempt. I decided to get as close as I could to each marker but not sweat it. So, I chose not to get very close to 8. I got tired on all the back and forth on the same trails for 8-9-10-11. I had every intention of going to 12, but as I started up the hill, looked at the time and the rest of the course, and decided to turn around.
The route from today is in red; it's superimposed on an old route from 2011 (part of the course).
