One benefit of teaching is that summers are light (the draw back of course is no money), so there are more opportunities to run and explore. Today I only had one class and was finished with that by 9:30, so I planned ahead and brought my running gear with me. A quick change and I was out the door (to a few laughs from my coworkers who had never seen me in shorts!!).
I thought it would be fun to mix things up a bit today by throwing in some steps, the picture probably represents half of the steps I climbed. Some of them were quite steep!
One of the golden rules of trail running: YOU CARRIED IT IN, YOU CAN CARRY IT OUT!!! One of my greatest pet peeves is coming across something as disrespectful as this. The trails are for everyone and this just gives runners a bad name as this is a product that only we would consume. I stopped to pick it up but it was covered with ants and I had no way to carry it back out without getting covered in goo and ants. 😦
In between taking loads of great pictures I logged another 13K and just over 900 meters climbed! No unusual finds just beautiful landscapes. 🙂
TGIF have a great weekend!!
