Another great trail run this morning, it was a bit slower and warmer but we ran the same distance. The cooling temperature is bringing out more cyclists and runners – and I am pleased to see more people out and about getting fit, but part of me is selfish and doesn’t like to share my space.
Trail miles are tough to log, depending on the terrain you can be so very slow or feel like you’re flying – but miles are miles. I only wish the body knew that. I started logging my miles in late 2005 (and I haven’t been diligent) but I’m now over 4,000. I think I’ll throw a party when my odometer reaches 5,000. Let me know if you want an invitation.
This photo is from yesterday’s run. This bit of our trail vaguely reminds me of the wooded area that my brother and I would ride our bikes through in the summer. He had a red and black Huffy and I had a pink Schwinn with tulips printed on a banana seat.
These little lanterns from today – they make me happy. As does the curly bits of vine around them. I want to squish the lanterns and see what happens, but then they wouldn’t be pretty. I can’t believe I didn’t notice them yesterday – but I reckon that is the beauty of trail running – always, always, always a different view.
