I always look forward to trail running every Saturday. But before heading to the trails, my husband and I stopped by first at our local Farmer’s Market to get some fresh fruits and veggies. Yay, I’m ready again for another Meatless Monday! Stay tuned.
And, here I go, ready to hit the trails.
I ran 7 miles this morning. I actually didn’t feel like I went that far because my mind wandered at the beautiful scenery. I love how the scenery changes from mile to mile. I appreciate all variations of running under shaded trees, to open fields, to views of rivers and streams. Air is definitely cleaner and so refreshing. Unlike when running on the roads, I sometimes cough when I smell fumes from passing cars. What could be more relaxing than being enveloped in trees and nature? There’s a connection to the earth that you just can’t get on the roads.
Plus the ground is softer (than roads) which is a lot easier on the joints.
I encourage everyone to run the trails once in a while. Get closer to nature. It’s really good for the soul. 🙂
