I love this photo. It's 100% pure fun. Kind of how I feel when I'm out there running on the trails. I sure am glad to be back out there.
Happy Runners - Checking out the view.
I would show you the view, but the camera is being a moody bitch! She is cranky with me. I managed to run for 3h 10min. and I was pretty elated. The body felt good. I was supposed to run a leg of the Banff-Jasper Relay today, but I thought it was best to bow out. I couldn't walk earlier this week. Who knew that I would and am back running?? Me so happy! The run was followed by a hot tub and stretch. My new pre and post-run ritual. Warm up the muscles, then stretch them.
Today, I felt a little stiff so another hot tub, stretch and out the door for a run. My body felt surprisingly good, but I think other parts of me are sore from all of the stretching! Mike and I headed up to Lake Minnewanka to enjoy another easy-cruisy run on the shoreline. Another run of 3 hours. Go me! There was lots of fresh snow on the mountains, but the trail was dry and perfect. The bitchy camera didn't give me one good usable photo. :(
I will admit to being a little sluggish today, I think I had a food hangover from a fantastic 6 course dinner that my friend Brenda cooked last night. Very Iron Chef. She made 6 courses all using the ingredient, Chocolate. :)
On that note, enjoy the photo and the video from our Trans Rockies Run 2008 Road Trip. And watch out for Jackelopes and those who ride 'em!! Yiiiihaw!
