Pip Running

Building a community one runner at a time

This could be a challenging run. I met my crew at the Starbucks parking lot and after a nice warm up we set off going south on 140th Ave SE. The run starts nice enough with you running on sidewalk which you lose after about 1 mile. Nice downhill leading you to the Soos Creek Trail. The entrance should be on your left and the entrance into the park is beautiful. You run over a short bridge that is surrounded by forest. I found it pretty lovely and wished I had snapped a pic. It's a short jog into a park with bathrooms before you run off of the trail and make a left onto SE 208th St. There is a very minimal shoulder on this semi-busy road so make sure you follow safety rules and run on the side of opposing traffic. This is where the run can get a bit challenging. Not only is there a minimal shoulder but now you will start encountering hills. Take SE 208th St to  148th Ave SE and make a left. The first time I did this loop I ran on the Lake Youngs Trail side to avoid traffic. It was nicely graveled but does have a series of hills with a nice downhill to 183rd. After that you make a run through the Fairwood Firs neighborhood back out to 140th Ave SE and back to Starbucks for a latte. The second time I did the loop I ran along 148th Ave SE until I got to the 148th Ave SE/192nd intersection. I had tired legs and found the hills a bit easier on the asphalt.
