But you know, you can find pretty nice places even close to home. My running route today is a mile from my house (Yes. I drove to it today. Shoot me. I don't like pavement). I thought, I'll take my camera! And take pictures! And maybe cross the elk fence for once!
Back in the day when I ran competitively (not for a team, just trying to beat everyone I could), taking a camera on a run meant I wasn't a real runner. Now that I don't pay to run, and since I've been running longer than some of you have been alive (ahem..Karen) I don't take things as seriously. I want to run forever, so I need to switch it up once in a while. So here's my moraine run for today. Come along...
|First, you climb. Puff puff puff.|
|It's pretty rocky. Give up those PR times. This first fence is a step-over...|
|The view as you slide under fence #2, wishing it was smooth strand...|
