Putting away my headlamp until next winter. And upping the mileage to come out of the self-imposed running slumber. I’ve been taking it easy for a while, not putting any pressure on myself. Just getting out there. But now I’m feeling the winter poundage that has crept on…and I miss the trails. And I really miss my old running friends. Many have moved on from the area, but I have to put an effort into reconnecting with those still around. Our old running group fell apart when the local retail store left the area. It was the hub of running activities. So I’ve sent out my messages to try to reconnect with the community. Saturday morning runs with friends are great!
And I think I’ll map out a plan for a summer 50k with more races in the fall. A sure fire way to banish the winter pounds!
