A Sweet TraiI RUN!


Yes today was a good day!
The sun shone down bright and the slight chill in the air awakened my senses and made me feel alive.
Back to wearing my New Balance 101's, my legs turned over at a fast clip and my feet hardly seemed to touch the ground.
I was only on an easy run over the Velvet Trail but it was a magical feeling of freedom that I come back to find time after time.
Now only If I could run like Kilian, that would be true ascension to a higher dimension!

Good week there Rick. You can run like him, but you'll end up with a lot of sand in your shoes! When you do, wear something other than your long johns ;-)

Your right about the sand in my shoes, I could have built a few big sand dunes with all the sand I've brought back home over the years.
and yes I'm not liking those white long johns ;0]

Hi Marty and thanks for dropping by.
Well I guess the Harrock Hill race series and hopefully getting into the top 10 at some stage!
