The good part - the return to the trails!  I decided to celebrate my birthday today by a return to the trails.  I've been testing my leg on short trail runs on trails right by my house - but it's not the same as going to the forest where I used to train all the time.  Well, what better birthday present to myself?  So I went today.  And it was better than I imagined.  Sure, I can't run far and I can't run fast yet - but it's a start.  And a damn fun one it was.  I got muddy, I got wet, I peed in the woods... I had a freaking fantastic time.  I didn't see a single person (just some deer)... and I've had a grin on my face all day.  I savored every moment, every step felt awesome.  I wanted to take pictures of everything - it felt like I was seeing things for the first time again.  I know I'm a cheeseball, but I honestly love it.
Here's hoping the injury is finally in the rear view mirror!

Here are some pictures from my day - Thank you all for the birthday wishes!

  1. Yeah! Glad you're back on the trails and have a coach to remove the guilt so you don't have to run as far as you think you should. :)
