Trail 100 Phoenix, AZ

Posted by on February 2, 2012

I had a chance last weekend to run out in the Phoenix, AZ area. There is a mountain perserve park less than 6 miles from my hotel. I took off one day and decided to get in as much running as I could handle.  Here are a few photos from the adventure. I also posted a full update on Daily Mile at


Trail 100 was the name of the trail and was marked about 80% with posts like you see above.


The cacus on the hill above looked like a cross to me.  Good opportunity to take a photo.


The above shot was at the 8 mile turn around point.


A nice shot of Phoenix in the background next to the mountain on the left.  The haze was very thick.


Above was a the typical view most of the way.


I wore my New Balance Minimus and it was a big mistake.

    Nice photos Ed.
    I dig the orange MT10s. I ran in my Black and Gold ones (University of Colorado colors) today actually. Wanting more shoe, but they don’t sell size 14 in Bolivia. I will be having a pair of the MT110s brought down to me as well as something for the road.
    Re: Arizona. Once we’re done here, I’d be open to moving there that’s for sure, but more likely somewhere like Flagstaff…I expect the heat won’t be much of an issue anymore.

    I almost bought the black/gold since those are Iowa colors as well. But orange is my favorite color so I had to go with them. I also wear since 14. I had a hard time finding the MT 110 in stock that big. You’ll have to let me know what you think of the MT110’s if you get a pair. I’ll be posting my own review in a couple of weeks.
