Arkansas River Trail Canon City CO.

20 miles 2:17:35 6:52 average per mile
10:50 am) 40's sunny light wind
Drove down to Canon City to try out some new trails.
Ran along the Arkansas River trail and hit the Tunnel Dr. Trail.
Mostly flat running except the Tunnel Dr. trail had some
climbing. The views were amazing from this trail looking
down on the Arkansas River and the canon. As a bonus got to
run thru 3 tunnels.
The run was difficult. Legs heavy from the race the previous
day but I mustered out the 20 miles.
