Mud


What an awesome run tonight! I did my usual Pine Lane to Boston Store route. This is definitely one of my favorite routes to run because it includes many hills, a couple stream crossings and beautiful scenery.


Right from the start, the trail was a mess! With all the rain we've been getting, the streams were filled to the max and there were huge puddles everywhere along the trail. I ran a pretty fast pace surprisingly, despite the bad conditions. I think I run faster in the rain and mud because it gets my mind off running. Whether or not it was actually a fast pace didn't really matter to me though. I was getting in a great workout since every step was a struggle. I only saw one other runner while I was out there. I told him "perfect trail conditions huh?" and he said "doesn't get much better than this!"

Rain is by far the best weather for running without noticing how far you've gone. Gotta love it!

Dang...that looks like a lot of fun! Why are all the races so far away? We need to create a closer one.

Have you done any of the mudathons? I haven't but they look fun. Looks like one's coming to Indy soon; maybe I should do it!
