The Huckleberry Trail has markers! I know where and how far I'm going! Hooray! So, I strapped on the shoes, headed out with Josh (1 mile from home), asked a Police Officer where it started (behind the public Library), and began running. Josh made it to the one-mile marker before his hamstring cramped up. I continued on until I reached the two-mile marker and trekked back. The terrain is flatter and smoother here on this trail, although it's still not a cake walk. Sections go straight up or straight down. Yikes! But I did it!
