Brooke and I slept at my mom’s house last night so that I could get up early and run the trails. Ummmm my body no longer remembers how to get up and workout early anymore. Josse and I were talking this morning about how we used to meet every morning at 5 to run… how did we do that? Maybe someday I will be in a position to workout early again but for now I will continue to just fit the run in whenever I can (and mostly on the treadmill).
It was insanely gorgeous and trail running in my opinion is the best medicine.
We did about 9.5 miles total and took a million breaks for pictures and to just stand there and look at the gorgeous views. This was a brand new to me trail and I will now be doing this one all of the time. Now I just need to keep praying that it doesn’t snow for a few more months.
I am pretty sure we saw every shade of orange, yellow and red while we were out this morning.
The run was pretty much perfect until I forgot to lift my foot up high enough as I was going over a rock and I tripped and fell hard. No blood but a very bruised ego and sore right quad. Isn’t it crazy how the world all of the sudden goes into slow motion as you are falling?!?
I haven’t been wearing my garmin lately (when I recover from a race I don’t care about pace and just run whatever feels comfortable) Josse has been using the Strava app and she sent over the elevation map of our run today. Turns out we live just a little bit above sea level.
My sister’s kids don’t have school today so we are going on an adventure in Salt Lake City including the aviary, trader joe’s, whole foods, j crew (okay, I haven’t told them that I am going to force them to go with me there yet) and much much more. Don’t be fooled by my nephew… he is stoked.
PS hello from my sister’s baby bump. I am seriously so stoked for this little man do join the crew.
Anyone use the strava app to track your running?
Any running apps that you use and love?
Ever fallen while running?
-Often. I need to wear a helmet while I run.
Favorite halloween candy?
