My "it's almost my birthday" run
I'll tell you what it was... it was a crazy beautiful day. Sun sun and more sun! It's about the only thing that made the "easy" ALL UPHILL (except when there was a little downhill) trail run bearable. OKay, or maybe the part where we were off the rock with a couple close GFs and it was a (for lack of better words) FREAKING GORGEOUS run.
Trail running is a bit different than what we're used too. But I'm growing quite a fondness for it. I like the part where you have to watch your feet so you don't trip.. it somehow makes the miles fly by. And I really can't stress how much I love the part where my super speedy friends S L O W down and make me feel a bit faster to run with them.
So minus the super steepness, there was one amazing waterfall, lots of sweet wildlife and a bit of shared solitude with a couple favorites.
thanks for the pre-birthday birthday run. xo
4.5 miles.... not posting our average pace (although you may feel better about yourself if I do.)
