Trail Zealot

Colorado hiking, Appalachian Trail thru-hiking, and more...

The sickness hiatus ends! I have been cycling between feeling pretty normal, a little sick, and a little wired for the last few days. I never felt like I was ready to jump back into running, so I figured an easy/slowslow run would knock off the rust. I definitely felt fine, but tried not to push it. Momo met a lot of dogs; it was nice to focus on her enjoyment rather than trying to cruise. Definitely got a tish outta breath on top of the hill on the east side of the soccer fields.

I snotted the whole way. It felt cathartic, like I was getting rid of something I no longer needed. Some seriously satisfying snot rockets.
