Ridge Run Training Formally Begins

If you got into this year’s Ridge Run, now is when the real work begins – training and preparing so your 2011 adventure will be as successful and as enjoyable as possible.

Kicking of the summer trail running season is a seminar this Friday night June 10th at REI:

Bridger Ridge Run Training with Mike Wolfe

Schedule permitting, I plan on attending. If I attend, I’ll post a summary of the seminar on this blog.

Course Conditions Early June

The College M to Mount Baldy trail is melting off. It is now snow free all the way up to Baldy Overlook. This is the high point about halfway from the M to Baldy. On a USGS Topo map this point is labeled 7657T. Beyond this point there is lots of deep snow. If you go early in the day before things warm up the snow is pretty firm and you can avoid post holing.

Getting up to Baldy took me a bit longer than usual for this time of year. I’m blaming the snow and not my ever increasing age – now mid 50’s! Yeah right, who am I kidding!

    Did you happen to make the meeting? If so, any chance of a summary? I had priorly committed to a weekend out of town with my girlfriend so I couldn’t attend myself. Thanks!
