Thank you Hoosier weather gods. 50 degree temps at the beginning of the week yielded a three-miler (30:47), a four-miler (forgot my watch, but it felt great!) and enough melted snow to actually go five miles on Friday even though the temperature had dropped back down into the 20s. Take that, treadmill!
Since I totally missed Foto Friday, here are some pictures of where I had my big 12-mile week. The trail is a Rails to Trails project and it is incredible. This past summer it was expanded to 13 miles one way, with plans for further expansion this season. There are waterfalls, fields, wildlife, all types of trees and birds...it is absolutely peaceful and beautiful...the perfect place to get all Zen and remember why you like to run.
