John Wayne Trail & the Yakima River

It's been three weeks since I sprained my ankle in Greece. I ran just a little last weekend. This weekend I put the ankle to the test on the John Wayne Trail where Tim Englund and I, and Missy and Steely, ran 15 miles on Saturday and 10 on Sunday. The weather was perfect for running. The colors were spectacular. My favorite scene was the old abandoned farm house.

I wrapped the ankle in coban. It did get a little sore about 10 miles into the first run when we picked up the pace on the way back. The slightly uneven running surface certainly challenged it. The next day it was fine, and so I challenged it again. Again, I had good results - a bit of soreness toward the end of the run but felt completely normal the next morning.
