It's official; I'm happiest when it's rainy, cool and I'm on a trail in the woods. I committed to some road races over the next few months, but I predict a big change in focus coming, with more trail running and hiking. It's such a rejuvenation.
Yesterday's long run was great - I had energy to spare at the end (nearly 8 miles) and could have easily kept going. It was, of course, cool and rainy, and I was back at Tualatin Hills Nature Park. I just get so much back when I'm in the trees and ferns and other green growing things. I find myself turning my playlist down and down and down till I can hear the birds and the wind. I become aware of the exchange of oxygen with the green. I feel connection with the Mother. I remember my soul. Gratitude.
