1st Run of the Year

The sun was shining brightly, the temperature was a balmy 20 degrees, and I couldn't wait to get out for a trail run! This is Salt Fork State Park. I was running a bridle trail, called the blue trail. Not a soul was out here.

The trail was a bit rough. The mud had frozen, which was good, but there were many rough spots where the horses had really chewed up the trail. But hey, it IS their trail.
It felt good to see the sun and soak up some Vitamin D!

A nice 5.25 mile trail run for the new year!


  1. Nice scarf! I got some bright orange trail clothes for xmas too; we match! :)

    Sounded like a great way to bring in the new year.

  2. Awesome run on New Year's Day.
    Heath and I got in 4 on a mixed surface run, but it was after sunset and we ran in the dark.

    Happy New Year Kimba!

  3. Nice photos! It's easy to forget what the sun looks like in Ohio. Happy New Year!

  4. those pine trails look like they need me and you smiling on didn't just photoshop us out of an old picture did you?

    good seeing you at Colleen's
