This morning I met up with the Saturday morning running group for a long run. I had seen the planned route before hand but really had no idea where we were going. It was all new to me.
We started off on the canal which was flat and I had already run on it before. About 2 miles in we veered off onto the old railroad train bed trail. The trees were lush and green, the grass was fresh with dew and the sun was peaking through the clouds. It was heaven.
Every step along the path was amazing and as we continued on we came along the old canal bed and lock. This whole area and trail was just behind a road I frequent often and I never knew it was there. It was amazing to discover a new area that was beautiful and a great place to run. I really regretted not bringing my camera many times because I wanted to capture just how awesome and beautiful the run was. I was able to find a few pictures online but they are not exactly the same.
This run marks the start of a VERY busy weekend - Bridal shower for a friend today, then volunteering at a race tomorrow and finally getting to see Something Borrowed tomorrow afternoon! At least I got a great run in!
