Trail Running 2012

Sunday I was able to join my running group for the first trail run of 2012!

We will be running trails one Sunday a month as a group. It's a nice change of pace (literally as I am MUCH slower on the trails and trying not to fall) and scenery!
View along our run.
I was very thankful my friend Megan joined me for this run! She is much more experienced on the trails than I am.

My muddy shoes...but you can't really tell in the pic.
The park was absolutely gorgeous! The sunshine and 40 degree weather in January wasn't too shabby either! The trail we were on went around the lake and the views were beautiful!

We ran about 45 minutes out (3.4 miles) and then a little farther back. We still aren't sure how that happened, but ended at 7.5 miles. We never felt lost, but we obviously came back a different way than we went!

I was exhausted that afternoon. It was a good kind of exhaustion that my body needed to feel. It's good to be back!
