Tuesday Training

This past Saturday, Gaigai, Tazer and I headed to the DuPage River Greenway.  With 9 miles on the schedule for my long run and a pleasant ride for Tazer and Gaigai, our plan was to follow the Greenway and connect to the ComEd Greenway.  Thinking this was a out and back, we were a little surprised when we didn't run into the connecting trail.


DuPage River Greenway runs parallel to the East Branch of the DuPage River (nice easy river to canoe). The 10 foot wide linear path traverses woodlands, prairie, wetlands and through the Hidden Lake Historic Trout Farm.

Mostly shaded, the paved trail is ideal for biking, hiking, running, rollerblading and cross country skiing with several well located port-a-potties along the way.

Slipping back into my loosey goosey training mode and enjoying the morning with the kids, I opted not to stress when the miles didn't add up:).

  2. That is a good trail, so many uses. Good parking and lots of portapotties are nice bonuses.
