Trees are starting to display fall colours on some of the favourite running trails in St. Catharines.
Brought my camera with me on a hike along the 12 Mile Creek Thursday to shoot some photos of fall colours. I wish I would have brought my running shoes instead because it was such a beautiful afternoon. But I had already finished my run for the day with a hard 19k workout in the morning and I wanted to try a few ideas I had with the camera. Haven’t had a chance to do much personal work lately so I headed to the trail after bringing the girls back to school after lunch.
There are a lot of amazing trails in Niagara. To be honest I don’t do a lot of trail running, instead opting for hiking on the trails with my wife and daughters. But it is something I’d like to get more into. I understand there is a long-time half marathon race hosted by the St. Catharines Runners and Walkers as well as a series of trail races that take place along 12 Mile Creek. There is also Hydro Hill, which I’ve heard all sorts terrible things about.
Didn’t see a whole lot of people running along 12 Mile Creek on Thursday but I did find some company.
