Day 25 of my Fitness Streak, it appears I’m getting my running legs back. Right now, I’m darn near ready to crash and sleep. My lids are so heavy, I’m not even sure what I’m typing.
I decided for a change of scenery this morning and headed off to Newport Coast. I took the toll road and made an effort to look at the toll cost as I drove through the sensor. One way cost me $6.75. Yikes! Double that for the entire trip and that’s a good chunk to add to the cost of today’s trail run. I learned early on, that despite my initial thoughts, running is not free – especially trail running. Seems like I’m constantly forking out cash for small ticket items and large – fuel (like gels, bars), electrolytes, hats, sunglasses, athletic tape, pack, pack essentials like pepper spray, etc., etc. The cost is worth it though – what I get in return is priceless.
