So I had my new hat & new shorts so thought I’d try a new route and a new sort of run. No headphones, no podcasts, no music. I was going to run through the woods and just enjoy it with no particular goal in mind. Running through the woods with my ears ‘open’, I heard the birds, omg the birdsong! I heard squirrels jumping out of trees, 2 of them ran in front of me. Some sort of hawk flew towards me then veered off. Rustling in the undergrowth 😳😂. None of this would I have normally heard. I ran through the woods towards the river and my watch dinged for 2k so headed back. When it dinged for 4K I didn’t really want to stop (I’ve NEVER not wanted to stop before!!😳). But heeding all the advice about not pushing it too quick too soon, I did stop.
I got home and wanted to do it again!! 😂
This is why I wanted to run
This, to me, is what running is all about
This was my best run ever!
This is a happy Sandie 😀
