The Magic of Evening

I must say, or rather write, that I cannot recall the last time I went for an evening trail run.  The weather was perfect too.  We had a little rain this afternoon, it was muggy by evening, but with a delightfully cool breeze. 

No near fail here.  My right shin felt tight running up Cholla trail, but that quickly ironed out.  I need to do this more often.  What was I thinking trying to run in the middle of the afternoon.  Note to self:  change things up more often.   I knew there was a reason I loved late sunsets.  How did I forget?

  1. Yay, that was a great run for sure! I don't do that enough either. I want to do more night runs as well.

    1. It's soooo hard to get out in the evening and run. My energy is already spent.

  2. I love running after work!! Evenings are the usually nicer weather, and it gets cooler the longer you run. Win-win.

    1. Now that you say that Giraffy, it does seem like a win-win.
