Tasting the Trail

Looks like she made a color puddle when she fell.

She had a bloody knee and elbow, but finished strong.

That's Emma.

This was the first 4 mile part of the run.

Nothing better than running on a green carpet of grass, so soft and spongy. My legs love it.

They were ready to go!

On the top of the hill before we headed down.
Well, these are in random order, but you can still get a good idea of what todays run was like! We all headed out on the trail. Sophie and Brian on bikes, Myles in the jogger, me pushing him, and Emma running with me. We did a 4 mile loop, and then Brian and Myles explored a bit while I took the girls up a big hill so they could experience running down this super fun single track I recently came across on one of my runs. It is super loopy, steep in spots, banked...just a hoot to run down.  But, if you are timid at all, you will taste the trail. You have to go all out, or stay home...there's no timidly slowly running down this thing. You'll slide, or tip over on the banked part. There are a lot of parts shaped like a V where you go from running down to running uphill with not much notice, and if you don't get one foot far out in front of you, you'll face plant into the hill in front of you.  Sophie says it tastes like dirt. : )
