The Poor, Poor Trail. What Have They Did-id To You?

If you’ve watched the news at all in the last month, you know the Northeast has been hammered by natural disasters.  First, it was an earthquake. Then came the hurricane.  Now, it’s flooding.   I came across some videos of my favorite trail being consumed by the flooding on fellow blogger The Running Moron’s blog.  This weekend is supposed to be my last long run before the Hidden Treasures Half Marathon on the 25th and the Army 10 Miler on October 9th.  After watching these videos, I’m going to need to find an alternate route to run.  I have a love and hate relationship with this trail.  I love running on it, but hate the fact that it’s so at the mercy of the weather.  This is the same trail I spent many wintery Sundays freezing with my tail off running through heavy snow. Still, it’s a nice trail to run on. 

And now for the videos…

I never saw the second video... I'm just catching up on blogs now. I was out for 23 miles on Saturday and the trail was messed up in spots, but I'm shocked at how well it's bounced back since!
