I got to the parking lot about 4pm and quickly threw my pack and shoes on to hit the trail. My stomach had been bothering me a bit that day but once I start running things usually subside. Started up the trail and was pleasantly surprised how easily I was climbing. My climbing legs are starting to come back.
I hit the summit in pretty good time. Typical desert views from up here but very nice to be on some new trails.
As I started back to the trail head is when the problems started. Stomach issues did not subside and I was hating myself for not using the restroom before I started running. This run had so much promise too. So I pretty much walked the entire way back to avoid any accidents lol.
Run ended up being an out and back, 3.76 miles and 566 feet of elevation gain. The stomach issues aside, it was a great run. Legs felt great, felt strong on the climbs, and got to mix it up on some new trails. Can't complain about that.
Ok who else has had some stomach issues out on the run? Did you have to sulk back or did you fight through?
