Sweet, soggy trails

Saturday was a no-go day for Trail Boy. I was busy nursing my sore legs from a long run on Friday evening and sanding the wooden floors of a spare bedroom.mud-puddle1

Today, the weather looked grim. It had rained overnight (that’s putting it mildly) and the temps dropped into the 30s. We got a few snowflakes here.

But in the afternoon, I had a spare hour or two, so I drove out to Fort Ben Harrison State Park to get reacquainted with trails there.

They were soft and slushy, but hey, trails are like sex. Even a ho-hum outing is pretty good. And all those mud puddles (we’re speaking of trails here) are just another fun obstacle to jump over, around or through.

I ran for about six miles, on two loops, and finished the day with a smile. Sweet, soggy trails!
