I am no t a trail runner, and I am no t a street runner really, I am an urban pathway runner by heart. I lo ve nature, but I do n’t want to spend the time to drive to a trail, and so I am always o n the hunt fo r a trail in the middle o f my city…especially if it Twe e t is secluded.

I Sdo have a favo rite 0 run that is near by, it is what I call my run in my back po cket.
0 « Jul
The start o f my run, Kayscreek Trail…here we go .
Pretty quickly yo u fo rget yo u are in a city
One o f the nice parts abo ut this trail is that they mark every 1/4 mile fo r yo u.
Tho se are the types o f ho uses yo u have to have to be able to build o n the trail.
I call this the cheaters parking, it is 3/4 o f a mile into the run.
Every Spring and every fall, abo ut 8 0 % o f the time, there is so meo ne getting their wedding pictures taken here.
We have caged up o ur lake. There is an entrance a co uple feet mo re do wn the trail, but yo u co uld no t see the lake. PDFmyURL.com
A mile and a quarter in, finally we are getting so me shade. Just in time to o , I am getting really ho t.
A co uple pictures ago I sho wed yo u cheaters parking, this is cheaters trail, it cuts abo ut 50 feet o ff the run, really peo ple, yo u saved yo urself 50 feet!
I do nâ€™t kno w if camping is allo wed o n this trail, but if it was, this is where I wo uld set up.
Almo st 2 miles in and yo u can sit and have lunch by the creek. I assume this is Kayscreek because that is what they call the trail.
Small but pleasant.
And perfect fo r a drink halfway thro ugh the run.
There is the 2 mile marker. The trail do es go o n fo r ano ther .2 miles, but this is where I turn aro und to go back.
I am ho t and sweaty and at the 0 mile o f my run? Apparently the guy who did this trail co uld o nly co unt to 2 because 2 miles in the co unting starts back at 0 .
No thing like a deep weasing breath o f sewer o n my run 2 1/4 miles in. Yes it is a nice secluded trail, but we are still in the city.
Thro ugh o ut the trail they have these little things that tell yo u abo ut the wildlife in the area, usually I am running but to day I actually lo o ked at o ne o f them.
This o ne is my favo rite wildlife sign. Apparently this co ugar go t nature lo cked, he is surro unded by ho uses with no way o ut.
Only a half mile mo re o n my run to day.
I did it! I ran 2 miles 2 times to day. 2 o n the way o ut, and 2 o n the way back. Yes, I am acting, I really was no t that tired, but I had to make it lo o k go o d. I really lo ve to go thro ugh nature o n my run, I lo ve the sights, the so unds, the smells (except fo r the sewer) That is why I run.
