I just started running them a few weeks ago. My neighbor, an avid mountain biker, rides the same trails and assured me that he has never seen a single mountain lion, nor rattle snake. So Two Sundays ago I got brave and went for a run. Now, it wasn't the first time I had gone for a trail run, but I usually drive to a trail head and run. During the week it's not feasible to do that because I have to be back home by 7 (the latest).<br><br>
I tell you what: I get out of bed now so pumped and giddy. I'll go for a 2 mile run on a whim just so I can have all of that quiet and nature to myself. I sometimes stop at the three streams I cross to look for creatures that might be hiding under the rocks.<br><br>
I've seen deer and tons of other critters...it's really rejuvenated me. And the trails are so much better on my body. I'd like to find a running partner, though. It does seem as though I'm taking a bigger risk.<br><br>
Do you have trails to run?
