One of my favorite things this summer has been the early Sunday morning trail runs that the Mamas have been doing. It’s refreshing, it’s renewing, and it’s restorative. I love the woods because time stands still. It’s the only place where 4.5 miles feels like it didn’t even happen. It’s so hard to describe and so very much appreciated. I think this morning was the perfect recovery run from yesterday’s brick workout. And it was great to have girl time before breakfast.
My two favorite Mama quotes from this morning:
On a difficult trail run full of hills climbing, rocks, and roots, “At one point I just said ‘F$&@! Little bench, little bench, little bench’. That was my mantra. I just had to get to that bench at the top.”
About the matching bug bites on the backs of her legs, “Great. Now I probably have Ezekiel (Zika) virus.”
All trails lead to happy,
