It was a beautiful, sunny day, so why not take my 5 miles outside?
The best part about training for a hilly marathon (so far… three days in) is that I’m forced to find new places to run, since my old routine mostly involved the East Lake Sammamish Trail, which is super flat. Now I’m looking for hills, as many as I can find, and in the process I’m discovering some beautiful trails I never knew existed.
Side note: My favorite part about my town is the way the mountains catch the clouds. I marvel at this on the daily.
Now we’re off to my dad’s house to start the two-day Christmas extravaganza of eating and opening presents. Huzzah!
Merry Christmas Eve!
