This evening I enjoyed my last trail run, just a short one to stretch my legs. My favorite trail is just a quick walk from my house. It is wooded, hilly, and secluded. In fact, in the hundreds of times that I have run on it, I have only seen one other person. Yet, my private trail is maintained, even decorated. All along it are odd shaped sticks, cairns, trinkets, memorials to pets, even tiny wind chimes. And tonight I was treated to this lovely bench.
I don't know who put it there, but it seemed like a good reason to take a minute to stop and contemplate the adventure that I am about to begin and all of the hard work that has gotten me to this point. I can't wait to get started. #everest2016
