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.

Cap City Training – Week 7, Run 3

Tall grass with a light in the background.

This looked more interesting live…it’s so dark in the morning when I’m running – I have to work on low light techniques and processing.  That said, the run was great – I felt better than ever!  Roads were basically clear today.  As usual, I start slow but after the first 2-3 miles (2 today) I feel great.

Cap City Training – Week 7, Run 1

A snowy street in the early morning lit by street lights.

A beautiful morning for a run.  Heavy, wet snow covered streets soften the strike.  Ankles and calves were sore from the rough terrain of the trail run on Sunday, otherwise, I felt pretty good.  I enjoyed the warmer temps and the scenery.
