Danada County Trails, Herrick Lake

Unplanned lunch time run. I was going to do my workout with weights at lunch and run in the evening, but life happened and I had to change plans. Ok, no problem but then when I was getting dressed I found out that I forgot my running socks(white ankle cut), so faced with the decision of running with no socks or my black dress socks a choose the latter, so I was the dork with black dress socks on the trails today. At least it didn't impact my pace...
