I am going on a 10 mile run with my brother Jon tomorrow around the Cleveland Metroparks. I am happy to run with him because he will help me to keep up my pace throughout. He does a great job of keeping a consistent mile time during distance running. We like running trails and have since we were 12 or so, mainly because it is more fun than running on a treadmill but also because my older sister used to take us on trails when we first starting running (and up hills when she was pushing our  limits:).  

This inspired me to tell you all about the Cleveland Metroparks running trails at the Bedford Reservation:

o   Sagamore Creek Loop Trail: 3.6 miles (The creek is pretty and there are a lot of shaded areas in the forest.)

o   Buckeye Trail: 9.7 miles (Quite a few hills and a bit rugged. Suggested for hikers but are you willing to take the running challenge? Jon and I might do this one tomorrow!)

o   All purpose Trail: 7.6 miles (nicely paved!)

They also have great trails from Rocky River and Brecksville.

The Cleveland Metroparks website provides maps for all trails so that you can map out your run! http://www.clemetparks.com/recreation/hiking/index.asp

Have a wonderful day!

Training began on Monday, June 18th, and Kris will be keeping a blog to bring you with her on her journey and she will be raising money for Lakewood Hospital during the process.
