Cap City Training: Week 8, Run 1

An image of the moon beyond tress - very dark

The moon was beautiful this morning. It was a little chilly (29F) with some wind – good to keep cool.  Yesterday I took 26 flights of stairs down and I worked some muscles.  Despite some early soreness the legs felt pretty good and overall it was a good run.  I’m so grateful that I can wake up and go for a run – or a walk.  Being outside connects me to the world.

Train Runner 101: Week 2 – Sunday Run


Wonderful 3-mile trail this morning.  We met some new people and ran with others we met last week.  Last week’s run was like running in the arctic, this week it was much warmer and very, very muddy.  That’s one of the things that I think I’ll like about trail running…the trail will change with the seasons and each day has it’s own unique interpretation.

Cap City Training – Week 7, Run 4

A path leading to a bridge with fog on the other side

I got out for an early run and was running as the sun was coming up.  There was mist/fog low to the ground in spots as I ran the path by the river.  There were some nice views this morning, including this picture.  These moments pass quickly – it’s great to be a part of them.
