On Saturday, King County Parks set up an outreach booth at the Cougar Mountain Trail Run Series. The day was filled with inconsistent weather, mud splattered legs but an overwhelmingly positive energy. I am not a trail runner, nor have I ever been (I actually despise running) but after talking with so many passionate athletes, I felt inspired to break out my shoes and get my heart rate up. Thank you to all the participants and vendors/partners (The Balanced Athlete, The North Face, Northwest Trail Runs, ATRA, GU Energy, Hoka One One, Pearl Izumi, USA Track & Field) out at Sky Country Trailhead who make this event possible. $15 of each entry fee benefits King County Parks and since 2003, Seattle Running Club has raised over $155,000 for King County Parks! WAHOOOOO! Thank you Seattle Running Club!
