|This is where I parked last week- main trail head for all 3 trails|
I went on one of my usual routes the other day down to Wright Park and found that I was rather irritated waiting at stoplights and dodging cars/bikes/strollers/dogs. Plus one reason I enjoy running is to be alone with my thoughts and just have some inner quiet time. Between my kids, my husband and my job I am usually talking ALL DAY LONG and it is nice to just have quiet surrounding me for a change. In fact I rarely take music with me on my runs anymore. Crazy I know, but I am actually quite content with my own brain to entertain myself!
|They make it look so simple...and check out those elevation charts!|
|Ready for the trails!|
|Don't look down!!|
|My feet were SO dirty!|
I have until Friday to figure it out. What do you think I should do? Run 14 again or aim for 16 instead?
Anyone out there training for something amazing? How is it going?
Who is running You Go Girl this weekend? I am a little sad to miss it this year but the timing just didn't work out for me. Good luck to those of you running- Alyssa, Mel, Meredith- and others I am probably forgetting!
