Getting Dirty

A couple of weeks ago I went for my first honest-to-goodness trail run … and it was AWESOME! There is a great trail at Alum Creek State Park – The Rocks and Roots Trail. If you want to give trail running a shot or even just take a nice walk in the woods, check it out!

It reminded me very much of where I grew up and spent my summer evenings and weekends. We had a house, quite literally, in the woods and my back yard was a large area with a huge ravine, creek, waterfall, trails, critters, mud and so much fun.

I spent countless hours out in the woods, both by myself and with my friends. It was the most wonderful place and being back in that kind of environment was simply fantastic. I got muddy and wet and had an amazing workout.

Of course I took lots of pictures, as I tend to do. All of them were taken with my phone, so the quality isn’t great, but every turn brought back more and more memories and I just couldn’t not capture them.

Life and weather has prevented me from getting back out there, so I’m counting the days until I can go again. I have a feeling I will be spending a lot of time on these trails. And I can’t wait.
