I have to admit the past few weeks I have been dreaming of spring almost every day. Around here trail running or riding pretty much shuts down when it is too wet. Late winter can be the worst time of year for the trails. It is usually not cold enough to freeze the trails to use them without causing damage.
I found myself going back and looking at a handful of photos I took last summer while out running. I really liked this photo and it gives me that feeling of weaving through the local trails when everything is fully green. Last year was the first time I really did any running on them. I have predominantly biked them. After my first run last summer I just fell in love with running them. It is a totally different experience than whizzing down the trail on my bicycle. You discover parts of the trail that seem so different when on foot.
I plan to make a short hike this weekend just to see what kind of condition they are in. If I can run them without causing any damage I am going to have to get a fix while we wait for the area to dry up.
This is not the best photo since I took it with my phone but it gives me that good feeling that makes me dream of running the trails again soon.
