The definition of early spring trail running in Colorado is- cold rain, toe-numbing snow, face-freezing sleet, shoe-sucking mud...
What is it that I like about it? Because it sure sounds miserable. What makes it so extraordinary and easy to lace up and blast out the door?
- Complete freedom
- The perfect sense of peace
- I get to be a kid again
- The solitude. Feels like I'm meditating by default.
So, some people do yoga. I like getting wet and muddy. Makes me smile.
