This morning I ticked one of the bucket list... trail running in Black River Gorge, Mauritius. I did a solo run without any prior research of the area, just exploring whatever trail looked epic. I started at the Black River Information Center, first running to the Mare Aux Joncs Waterfall and back. I then went up the Pilgrims trail and linked to the Macchabee Trail, running all the way to the Macchabee View Point... what an hectic climb. At this point my legs were jelly and tried to take another road down that ended up climbing further. I had to turn around and after 4 hours of fun I jumped into the river.
