Wasson Peak Trail

Today, I took the day off and went for a run with my friend Kali! What a great way to spend a day off! 

It was a beautiful day! Partly cloudy, and it felt like a great temperature. Perfect day for running! We took the trail that starts in the wash (one that people have a hard time finding, so no one was on the trail) and headed up to the abandoned mine. I didn't get any photos of that because there were a few people hanging out there, so I couldn't get a good shot.  Don't worry, I'll be going back. 

We had a great time, as you can see. I'll admit, it was tough! This was my first ever trail running experience, so I wasn't too sure how it would go.  It was a lot of fun, I just wished we picked a flatter trail This one is uphill and it hurts! We didn't have that much time either (Kali had an appointment to get to) so we didn't go up the trail very far. We both had fun and we both agreed it was a good challenge and we'll have to train here more often. 
We traded between the fuel belt and the backpack just to see how they would feel on the trail. The fuel belt doesn't really work with the rough terrain, it just kept bouncing and bothering the heck out of me! The backpack was great though, and I may look into buying some trail running shoes.

Hope your first week of 2011 was fantastic! I'm going to try and catch up on all the blog reading I've gotten behind on! 


  1. Looks like so much fun!! Trail running is tough but very fun :)

  2. Awesome pictures! I'm jealous you are wearing short sleeve shirts! :) I'm glad you guys had an awesome run!! :)

  3. Great pics!! You should submit the 4th one (the runner with the 3 cacti) to Runner's World for their rave run. It's great!

  4. Awesome pictures! I am excited to really get into trail running this year.

  5. Wow, it is so beautiful there; I'm jealous.

  6. Trail running is awesome and a great diversion to street running...and works some different muscles while you're at it. Trail shoes are a good investment..I bought some and wore them on a 6 mile trail run in the foothills and also in the snow in Minnesota..worked very nicely.

  7. Lani - I was trying for a better view in the background, but that means we would have had to go farther up. I wonder if Tucson was ever featured in Runners World Rave Run?

    Leslie- I want to buy some! I'm looking at a few pairs at REI.

  8. Looks like an awesome place to run.



I love what you have to say!
