Training Log: Easy 10 mile run.

This week my long run was only 10 miles. Yes, I said only. Compared to the 14 & 16 mile runs I've logged lately, 10 felt, in the words of my 6 year old daughter, easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy.

In true Colorado fashion, it was a peaceful, bluebird day on the trails. I did a big loop, maneuvering through three different trails to cover my 10 miles- Lee Gulch, Platte River, & the Highline.

It was one of those runs where I remembered why I do this. Why I put on my Brooks day after day and subject my knees, feet, and shins to torture. There is just no better way to explore God's creation than with my own two feet.

It _is_ amazing how you feel like you "explore gods creation with your own two feet" when you run. You see so much more detail when you are running than when you are in a car- so much more appreciation. Love it! Love the pictures! I used to love running through new cities- new neighborhoods. While natural beauty is great, the creation of life in cities is just as exciting. Keep running....
