Running 1:25:45 [1] 8.0 km (10:43 / km) +605m 7:47 / km

So I started at the bottom of the silvermine trail (Ignore the line from home... I didn't use my Garmin I was testing using the bluetooth GPS with my phone and a new app), and was planning on GPSing all the trails along the bottom chunk of the mountain, and look at the forest to see if it was worth mapping for a weeknight event.

So the plan was to take the lowest trail on the way out, and then weave my way back filling in all the other trails. Interestingly, I found a trail I had never been on before, so I took it. It traversed (with a slow climb in general) towards the west along Mount Ida, but slowly petered out. So, rather than just turn around, I decided to bushwhack up the mountain until I hit the cutracross road. Turns out, in most places the forest is very nice, but there were a few sections of superthick deadfall.

Hit the road a little west of where I was expecting, never really knew where I was. Ran back along the road, and then down the second east-most silvermine dirt biking trail.

It is so awesome to be able to go running somewhere completely different all the time.
