    Favorite spots? Mine is Ft Ben Park. I like to park at the Cherry Tree lot, which is roughly in the middle, and run sort of zigging figure 8's--I can put together quite a bit of trail that way and I'm rarely far from my car. I don't like to plan my distances or times much, so it works out well. I kick myself a little for paying to get in--it seems that many of the runners must just enter on one of the trails. Five bucks to go for a run is pretty obnoxious. I'm always interested in finding more.

      Easgle Creek - great trails and mix of roads. Lots of times you can park off 56th street and run into the park and skip the $2 fee. Annual pass is only $40 off their site and we usually load up the car with five people so it makes it less.

        I eager to go to more trail running this summer. I plan on going around to some of the state parks I have fond childhood memories of for my long runs on the weekends, and, perhaps doing some camping after I'm done.

          I did a few loops around Skiles Test park today--the trails are really short, but they're close to me, free, and I like doing hill repeats there.

            The DINO run at Town Run was alot of fun, despite being a little wet and slippery. Making it even better for me was winning a pair of shoes--it was like getting paid to run...so, in a sense, I'm now a professional runner. Or something. The Knobstone Trail Mini put on by the Hoosier Hikers Council was one of the toughest races I've done. I ended finishing in just over 2 hours, but it's awfully hard to figure how that would translate to a road course. I'm looking forward to doing it next year with a little more familiarity with the course.
