Lone Star Trail Run

Saturday was a real nice trail run with HTREX at the Lone Star Hiking Trail.  It was an 8.5 mile out and back.  The terrain is pretty flat through the forests of the Sam Houston National Forest.  Lots of tree cover, and about 20% of it had the shoe sucking mud… but it wasn’t that bad. The weather was a little cool but pleasant at the start, ~60, and warmed up to at least the lower 80’s.  Pace started out a bit quick and it took me a good hour or so to warm up, but settled in and actually felt really good the last 2/3 of the run.  Was probably one of my more satisfying runs in a while — just long enough to feel good, but not too long to feel totally destroyed either!  Shared some beer, food, and stories at the end with the other crazies to wrap up a nice morning.  On to Hell’s Hill’s 50 mile for a little redemption…?!
