me: 1/trail: 0

Today’s stats:

Miles: 4ish?
Minutes: 43
Blisters: 1
Beers consumed: 1 each
Bugs swallowed: 1
Bliss: 100%

I had such a good run I was singing Ave Maria all the way home.

Actually I was singing So What by Metallica, but same thing, right?

And here’s the money shot: enjoying a refreshing hoppy beverage after the run. Yep, we come prepared.

Kate plays it cool; I of course am the eternal dork.

But…wow! I felt FABULOUS! All the bugs, tree branches, muddy creeks, death-defying leaps, turns and torturous inclines you’d think might wreck a run? They make me feel like I’m home.

And the Mission St. IPA and Upland Dragonfly?

They make me feel like I’m home, in bed, under a warm binkie.

I did eat one bug. It flew right into my mouth and hit the back of my throat and I coughed a little and then swallowed. No matter what they tell you, this is the real reason you inhale through the nose and exhale through the mouth.

Until we meet again…

  1. Trail running is the way to go – it’s freaking gorgeous. You work a little harder, but hey – you run to get a hot ass anyway, right? I’ve never tailgated after a run, but that sounds delightful.

    • it was our first post-run tailgating expedition — and then we wondered why we had never done it before. Instant gratification, and you don’t have to disturb anyone with your offensive body odor…
