I am very lucky. I live right by a lovely creek with a long path running alongside it. I can go out my door, do my warmup walk, and there I am at the path. I have yet to run the entire path, so every time I go out, I see something new.
And now that it’s fall, the scenery is incredible. These camera phone shots do a poor job of showing you just how beautiful it is.
Clearly, I’m not the only one out running. I love the random inspiration along the way.
This part of the run was new to me. I hit a new distance this weekend (16 miles) and took a part of the trail that I hadn’t run before. It was very different from the heavily wooded parts of the trail, but I kind of liked the sparseness of this. I could envision a movie being filmed there.
When I put the contract on my house, I hadn’t been paying attention to possible running routes, and was delighted to discover this great path practically right outside my front door.
