On the path of champions. In the steps of heros. My weekend run at Valley Forge.

Last Saturday, I enjoyed a fantastic training hike/run in Valley Forge National Park. After all these years of going to work with clients in the area, I finally decided to stay over a weekend to take in the area.

The trails at Valley Forge are not only beautiful and challenging, but also allow you to see some of the monuments, sites, and buildings closer than you would driving.

In setting my course, I was energized to learn that Olympic medalist and 2-time world champion Catherine Ndereba trains in the Park, as do several other Kenyan runners.

Maybe it was their spirit that contributed to my excellent time that morning.
