Trail Running is Love.

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.

It’s a chance for me to enjoy nature.

I encourage everyone to run the trails once in a while. Get closer to nature. It’s really good for the soul. 🙂

      Me too. I wish we live close to the trails. The trail the we go to is kinda far from our place that’s why we can only go there once a week.
