This kids are so close to getting out of school and are anxiously awaiting summer vacation. Our toddlers are
freaking out want to be outside non-stop. We are trying to close out the school sport seasons with the kids, figure out how to keep them occupied this summer and in the interim running our asses off a lot to get in as many miles as possible while the weather is still nice before it turns HOT. I must say when I parked at the Grainery last night and my thermometer showed temps in the 50’s, I was a very happy camper. That 40-55 degree range is perfect for me and that is why the spring/fall running weather is the best. Crisp, cool, zero humidity. Win!
I have also been
obsessed in the mood to run the long way around the pond these days. I don’t care for the little curves just east of the Grainery, so have been running around the pond when I am solo. It adds a little distance but makes up for that in beauty, tranquility and less crazy curves.
Did I mention that it was tranquil? I feel so fortunate to live close to nice trails that are safe and well maintained. Road running can be stressful and dangerous but if you hit the trail, although you still need to vigilant, you get a bit of peace/tranquility and it’s safe for the most part. At least you don’t need to worry about a car running you down, right?
I run Old Plank a lot due to it’s length and vicinity to my house. I consider it my “home” trail. Do you have a home trail? Which one? I’m always up for a road trip to run somewhere new. Tell me about your trail!
