Bergen Peak - Upper Loop

A moderately-paced run on the upper loop at Bergen Peak on a perfect fall evening.

Time: 1:20
Distance: 8.65 miles
Effort: Moderate
Body: Fair
Weather: Sunny & Cool

From the lower lot at Elk Meadow Open Space, I ran up Painter's Pause to Meadow View, then did the upper loop running up Too Long and down the Bergen Peak Trail. Completed the circle via Meadow View and Sleepy S.

Didn't feet too whippy today...just plugging along with no zip.  Got a weird muscle pull thing going in the area where my right leg meets the pelvis. Been feeling it for several weeks. Not going away. Doesn't affect my running, or much else, but I can feel it when I first start to run, and when I cough while running. Will be keeping an eye on it.

Been reading lots of great reviews of the new NB MT101s. Not really seen before such a buzz about a pair of shoes. Makes me wonder how much of it is good marketing and how much of it is innovation, design and performance. Reckon I'll have to try a pair sometime to know... 

1,755 feet of elevation gain.


  1. Solid run still, picking up my 101's tomorrow, pretty excited. I ran all of last year in my 100's and my only gripe was the upper material's ripping too easily. Allegedly that's one of the things they updated. Oh, and they can be a bit cold in the snow...

  2. I'm with you on the 101s. Likely picking up a pair in the next week. Check out They're $10 cheaper and offer free 2 day shipping. I get a lot of stuff from this site.
