Lunchtime Trail Runs
One of the perks of my job is that it’s located outside a major center, which not only helps me avoid traffic, but also put me quite close to more than a few trails. So days like today where the weather cooperates, the boss is away, and the work load permits I like to get my ass out of my desk chair at lunchtime and make the most of my day.
I have two trails that require a short drive to reach the trail head, however the 3rd trail can be accessed by cutting through the local golf course. In summer there are a too many risks to try it (getting pelted by golf balls, or run over by an angry golf cart driver to name a few), however since the course has been closed for the last 3 months this particular trail has become my trail of choice. It’s nothing spectacular, and it’s not even very long, but it’s mine and it suits my needs just fine.
I don’t get out as much as I’d like but it’s days like today that leave me with a smile and an appreciation for what I have.
Life’s so much better when you can appreciate the small stuff.
Here’s to you trail o’ mine!
