Got home, and threw together a ramen salad for a BBQ we were having, so fattening, but so good. I wanted to get to Beaver Lake for a trail run with my sis in law, J. She's a great running partner, we do the Boilermaker together. Made it there by late afternoon, and it was perfect. The sun had come out, it was about 65 degrees, no bugs and no humidity. We did the lake loop, and then one other trail, for a total of 4.1 miles. I love trail runs because they're always changing, and you get a bit dirty. The hills were steep, but quick. It was neat to look down at the trail this time of year, and compare it to just four short months ago, when I was on it, but to cross country ski. We saw deer prints, and every so often a rabbit or chipmunk would cross our path. I love the feel of the earth, it gives just enough under your feet, compared to the slap slap slap of pavement.
On my drive over, I passed a field that had just been plowed, the light hit it just right, and it was beautiful. On my way home I pulled over to try and take a photo of what I had seen, but the sun had already passed. I took the photo anyway, then went on home.
