A Good Run

I got out for a trail run this morning with absolutely no goals in mind.  I didn’t feel particularly strong.  In fact, climbing Rock It was a bear. A big grizzly bear.  But I did enjoy the hills.  They were alive.  They were alive with a cold breeze that played music by rustling leaves and swaying tall grass.  They were alive with squirrels and bunnies, lizards, and a blue heron. 

Yes, it was a good run.

    1. I find it fascinating Johann that we have such similar ecosystems so far apart. We have some of the same plants, some of the same animals. If you ever make it out my way, I will definitely take you on some of these trails, and I'm sure they will look a little familiar.
