If you've read my last post, you'll know I was just getting back into the running groove after a summer hiatus. Well, that ended five weeks ago when I injured my back. I've been out of commission and am just now slooowly working back into being active. So, my 5K was a walk, not a run, but it was glorious!! I decided to take my favorite trail and enjoy the beautiful day that Southern Wisconsin was dishing up yesterday.
The trail is open at parts, and covered with leaves and down tree branches in others. My favorite part however is:
The downhill that leads to the creek!! So pretty. A little slick due to the leaves, but not as bad as I was afraid it was going to be. The only problem with this awesomeness is:
Luckily there is a handy bench a little bit before the climb in case you need a rest ;)
All in all it was a beautiful day. I took my time and stepped carefully. ( I may have even run for a few minutes!) I took lots of pictures, which I tend not to do when I am running, because I hate carrying my phone in my hand. I saw birds and squirrels and evidence of other wildlife:
So I leave you with this not so attractive self portrait and evidence that I am a slooow walker (even though I ran a little). Oh well. I did it and I'm proud!
p.s. GO PACK!!!
