Today I started out on the road and had plans to stay on the road, but then I saw this "road" that leads off through the hills. I took it. I didn't care if I got grass seeds in my shoes, I was heading to the hills!

I wanted this.
I stopped and did about 15 minutes of yoga and 15 minutes of just sitting with my dog enjoying the views. It was a beautiful fall day.
Then I finished my run rather euphoric, my legs are feeling good and recovered and my soul refreshed. Seriously the best run mentally in a long time. I think I will do nothing but trails every chance I get for awhile.
I already have three halfs and a relay on the schedule for next year. This year will hopefully have one more half marathon and at least one more 5k.
When was the last time you had a "fall back in love with running" run?
