Deep breath. It's amazing how the magazines or books that sit in the bathroom can start to change your brain. This Trail Runner edition has got me thinking about taking on the Des Plaines River Trail this afternoon. It's pretty perfect. It has a trail head in the parking lot where I work. There's a section that's only 1 mile long (making a 2 mile loop) so I can start slowly. This thing is, like, 20 miles long. So I won't soon run out of trail to explore.
Thanks to living in Montana I already have North Face trail running shoes so.... Maybe I'll be one of those people who 'get in a quick run after work.'
That's so fun to say out loud!
