I got in a 5 mile run on Sunday. I ran early in the morning before the record breaking 86 degree heat we got that day. It was hot, but not muggy. It was a really nice day. ......... No run on Monday.
Today I wanted to run, but really didn't want to run alone. I have a coworker, Ernie, that also runs during lunch so I sent him an email to see if he was running today and if he wanted company. He replied saying that he was running some new trails that found and sure I could come along. YES! I haven't run to many trails, only because I don't know of many so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to learn of a few around my work.
One of the trail entrances
There were so many trails out there that I never knew existed! Apparently there is a big trail running group out that way and they run these trails and others that stretch out for miles across many of the surrounding towns. We ran roughly about 7 miles at Ernie's 10min mile pace. Which was fine with me. I was enjoying the views of all the nature around me. It was awesome!! I could of run another 10 miles, but my time was limited and I had to had back to work. Unlike Ernie, I'm an hourly employee and I have to punch back in when I get back. I was a bit late but it's never a big deal with my boss. I make up my time during the week.
This a must do again, but would like to plan it out for the weekend so I have more time to explore all these trails!
Any trail runners out there? Would like to lean more about trail running groups. Would be nice to mix up my runs a bit.
