Fun on Trails

Yesterday morning I went for a short little trail run before work.

The lighting is different, so is the angle, but compare the park now to back in May. Guess which is which:

Be sure to wish Alyssa and Kari good luck at the Wineglass Marathon this weekend!


  1. Your scenery is so much more pleasant than mine, lol. Great weeks of workouts! I hope the job training went well. :) good luck to your friends...I've heard it's a great marathon,.,I lived fairly close to Corning but never ran it but a friend of mine has done it a couple times and really likes it.

    1. I do like my new scenery but I also miss running in SHADE! That park is as close as I can get to having shade and it's just for a few brief stretches. I've heard Wineglass is a good marathon too- a friend recommended it if I ever decided to try a full.

  2. Pretty scenery!!! I am sure that keeps things interesting!! Have a great weekend run!

  3. I'm jealous of your trail running! It looks so pretty there.

    You forgot to wish me luck on my marathon this weekend. Sure, it's a marathon of watching Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives, but IT COUNTS.

    1. It DOES count! But you'll be back to running crazy distances in no time, and you'll be way more bad ass than anyone else I know because you'll be pushing 40 lbs of spawn and a stroller while you do it.

  4. CA trail running is incredible. I'm super jealous!

  5. OMG I'm so behind on blogs! Thanks so much for the shoutout. I love your new shoes. And that's an awesome tempo run, especially on top of traveling and beginning a new job!
