For a girl who loves the great outdoors, this has been an excellent week.
I recently started trail-running with a friend Andrew and I met through Ultimate Frisbee, and we met this week for a river run.
It’s tough to have a bad workout when that’s your scenery!
On Tuesday (my day off), my friend Kate and I drove to the mountains for a hike. We started with the hike I did a few weeks ago–Humpback Rocks–but when we reached the Appalachian Trail, we walked south rather than north and discovered a few new-to-us overlooks.
Gorgeous, right? We hiked about six miles total, including some serious uphills! My glutes were a tad sore the next day.
There’s just something about the mountains–and being outside in general–that is good for my soul. No matter how grueling the workout, when there’s beautiful scenery involved, I always walk back inside feeling rejuvenated.
Have a great Sunday!
Did you get outside at all this week or workout in any beautiful places?
