My run for May 22 doesn’t look all that special. I ran 3.3 miles at a 12:29 pace.
Ah, but my climb in that short run was 844 feet. I did a “bluff run”!
I just can’t repeat often enough how much I love having Scotts Bluff National Monument in my civic backyard. It’s a great training challenge with a great view!
On this evening in late May, we ran up the road instead of the pathway. I prefer the wide-open space of the roadway at that time of day at this time of year: all the better to see the rattlesnakes, my dear.
I forgot, though, just how severely canted the Monument road is. It’s not too much fun to run on.
Perhaps I’ll have to do my next bluff run early in the morning so I can take the path …
