Had a fantastic 9 mile ‘long’ run today. Many of my favorite trails are heavily overgrown and teeming with ticks so I decided to do a little road running and see if I could find any new dirt/rock trails along the way. I got lucky and found a new little gem of a trail, tucked some 3.5 miles into my usual route. It was perfect for getting in a little more technical trail running during my run. After about a half mile it became fairly steep switchbacks- perfect!
It was gorgeous and followed a little creek that was happily gurgling and full of chirping critters. As always, I’m excited to have found a new, beautiful and serene place to run. Nothing better! Cheers to exploring, tiny adventures and happy discoveries!
