Rave Runs….

Every time I step out the door these days, it’s a RAVE RUN.  My excitement is just bubbling over!  I’m so happy to be running that I don’t even care how flippin’ hard it may be when I’m actually out there.  I don’t even care how slow I am currently running.  I don’t even care that it has been pouring rain on almost every run as of late.  I don’t even care that it is almost always dark. I don’t even care that the trail is slippery with leaves.  I’m just happy to be back on the run.   And almost every trail in my area looks just like this one (Midlothian Reservoir Trail):

Isn’t that fantastic?  It usually just me and the critters out on the trail now too.

It seems as if everyone is in post-marathon blues hiding.  I almost feel guilty that I’m this happy.

Or maybe not.

Next up?  I need to throw away the candy knock off this weight and start to get serious.  I’ve got places to go, people to see and races to run. 

See you at the start line!
