I know I go on and on about this, but I can’t tell you how much I enjoy running with Sophia. We really have a LOT of fun and she may slow me down sometimes, but this early in the game it is more important that I get out regular than it is to be fast or log a ton of miles.
Today we ran down the Centennial Trail. I usually run on a short flat section of this trail right in front of my house, but today we drove down to the big trail head and took a different route for a little variety. Walking in the forest was a lot of fun, because it was a cool teaching opportunity for us as we discovered new birds and plants. We also had a great conversation about cougars because of the big orange warning sign. This route had a much bigger hill that slowly climbed 390 feet over about a mile. It’s not a huge hill, but it is LONG and steady. It was nice to get a change-up from the short steep hills around my neighborhood. the details are below:
