|It's harder than you would think to take a steady picture in the middle of a ten mile run.|
One of my favorite parts of the trail was the moss covered trees. You come around a corner off the beach and there they are! It was one of those moments where verbal "wow" came out of my mouth. It was entirely unexpected and a nice treat.
There was also a section of marsh with dead trees everywhere. It was beautiful to look at but man did it smell funny. All of this was on a short 1.7 mile trail and even though it was short it was definitely worth it. It was pretty cool to see all these different types of terrain in such a short area.
Once I got back to the trail head I decide to hit up another trail that had a lot of people on it. This one was wooded and wide. It looked more like a road than a trail, but the terrain was nice and I still enjoyed it. I saw more hills in this park than anywhere else, but it was by no means hilly. My run wasn't to bad except for the last mile or so. It's the furthest I've run this season and I was feeling it towards the end. There were even some points where I wanted to walk. Once I finished I felt incredibly happy. I hadn't missed a run since last Sunday and I was tired, but still felt good. Having so many places to explore has really helped with motivating me to get out the door and with the weather being so nice I really don't have an excuses
