10 mile trail at wilson's creek national battlefield

this is one of my favorite trails to run and it is less than four miles from my house. today i found a quicker way to get off of the outer road and onto the trail. someday i hope to do multiple loops on this trail as part of my training for events like the "rocky raccoon 100". today i had to take one walk break during mile seven. up one of the steeper inclines i got a tightness in my right calf muscle. after walking for a bit it was fine. i am thinking that on longer trail runs i will plan to include some galloway walks.
