Run 47:08  5.55 mi (8:30 / mi)
shoes: Nike 2008
Run in Skagway. Decided to actually run on land since we were docked up. Wasn't sure where to run. I had been to skagway several years ago with Eddie Bergeron and we hiked a trail. I was worried about running the trail by myself (bears, or getting hurt and missing the boat departing...). The trail was right next to where the salmon were spawning so I wanted to run there and watch anywhere. When I got there, the trail looked crowded with lots of people on it so I decided to do it. Ran to the lower lake and ran around the lake. It was nice run if you don't mind climbing 1000 feet first to get there. Getting up to the ridge where the lake was very tough. Once I got there the first part of the lake run was very nice. The back side of the lake was less used and very rocky. There were several places it was impossible to run and I had to hike/climb over rocks.
Coming back down the hill was also tough. Stopped to look at the fish again, then the 1/2 mile back to the boat.
