Amazing Run

I haven't had much to blog about this year seeing as I don't have any races on the schedule and life has been crazy hectic. I have been pretty good about keeping up with my running. More about that in another post.
So today when I was getting ready for my run, it was 50 degrees with a light rain. I wasn't sure exactly how to dress, so I walked outside to get a feel for the temp. 50 degrees in the spring feels a lot warmer than 50 in the fall. I decided on shorts, a light long sleeve compression top and a running t-shirt plus some light gloves.
I arrived at the trail head to find I was the only one there. Perfect. It wasn't long before I noticed how peaceful it was out in the woods. The trees were green with newly budding leaves, birds were singing and the light rain made that nice soft sound. It was like I was running with one of those soothing sound clocks playing.
Things are getting green

Decided to wash my hat by wearing it in the rain :-)
Not many flowers out in the woods
Fun getting muddy :-)

Good times! :) I love running on our trails. I've spent so much time on the bike that your Instagram pictures are the closest I've been.
