Like the Trinity Level Trail on the north side of the Trinity River, the Trinity Skyline Trail also boasts a soft surface (which can turn into a muddy road on a rainy day), a natural setting and a stunning skyline.
But Trinity Skyline Trail also have some advantage.
It has its own ample parking. Trail users can use the parking lot at the west end of the Continental Pedestrian Bridge
It is connected to the Continental Pedestrian Bridge, which has a stunning view.
It is next to the Trinity Grove that features the most trendy restaurants in Dallas.
For this out and back trail, you will have the skyline on the way back as the best motivation! However, the scale of the skyscrapers can be misleading. They may seem closer than they are in actual distance.
To get there, use the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge (choose Singleton Blvd lane on the right side), turn right onto Gulden Ln at the first traffic light once you are off the bridge. After driving about 400 yards, you will make a sharp right turn to get into the parking lot. See the picture below for parking instruction.
Here is a view from the start point. Notice, there is also a lower level trail for flood control engineers. We will only use the upper level, i.e. Trinity Skyline Trail, for our running purpose. Notice the soft gravel and dirt surface is available from the start. Your feet will thank you for choosing such a soft trail!
The trail can really go on for quite a while. Interestingly, if you turn around under Westmoreland Road Bridge, that out-and-back trail is exactly 6 miles. You will see something interesting along the way, from architecture to natural reserve....
After we finish running the trail, walking onto the Continental Pedestrian Bridge is a great way to do the final stretch and relax....
Every year Japan-America Society of Dallas Fort Worth (JASDFW) sends two representatives to the Sendai International Half Marathon in Japan. The run this year takes place on May 10, 2015. All expenses are paid and this is a great opportunity for individuals to travel internationally and compete for the great city of Dallas.
I have attached a flyer and the application for the half marathon. We would greatly appreciate if you could display the flyer and spread the word about this event. The application deadline is February 27, 2015.

Relay Team -- Five Alive! with Bryce Summers, Don Gore, Gunes Bender, Randy McKinley and Lyle Shipton (C) -- Finish time: 03:30:54. Top 10 in open male group
Relay Team -- Rainbow Express with Lin Wang, Matt Mather, Alfred Brown, Greg Brow (C) and Dave Collins -- Finish time: 03:31:07.
The two relay teams had one of the most intense competition you could ever imagine. Both crossed the half way point at exactly the same time, and team 5 Alive! claimed the victory against team Rainbow Express by 13 seconds, or merely 0.1% advantage.

It is inevitable that we always bring much more food in any party than what we can eat. But at the minimum, we can coordinate our effort by diversifying our dishes. Please help fill the poll and try to avoid to choose a category which has already been claimed by multiple persons! Thank you.
What type of dish will you bring to 2012 Holiday party??
