In just one week, I'll run the Holiday Lake 50K in Appomattox, VA. While I've managed to stay on track with my training plan, snow and ice have lead to more treadmill miles than I'd like.
Enter Burke Lake Park (trail map)- one of my favorite places to run in Northern VA. Every runner has a "home trail" or two, and this is definitely one of mine.
The trail around Burke Lake totals 4.7 miles, and today I ran it twice for my first taper run. It's just what I needed to get my head back in the trail run game.
