I woke up this morning and had a yummy breakfast & then I convinced my sister to go on a trail run with me in my hometown. I've wanted to go on the trails for a while now but I never want to go alone.
It was kind of cold today so we got some warm clothes on and hit the road! We drove into town & started at the cemetery & ran down the trail by the river. It was so much more scenic than my regular run through town & in the park.
And it definitely beat by route that I take down the gravel road & back when I'm at my parents. I took quite a few pics to document the moment. Here's Jess just running along!
Well.... pretty soon we were goin in all kinds of loops and got a little confused as to which direction was which & we cut across to another trail. Pretty soon we found the lagoon!!
Did I mention that I rolled my ankle & thought that I pulled a muscle!?? YEA! I did... I'm not used to that rough terrain. There were roots & rocks & mud and all kinds of stuff that are not on the Fargo sidewalks. But I ended up running it out and then felt fine!
Anyhow... we ran a little further & figured we better get on the trail that goes around the lagoon so we don't run further in the wrong direction. Funny thing was... the lagoon has a barbed wire fence around it. SOOOO... we were a couple of rebels and jumped the fence. I threw Josie over. (don't worry, I threw her lightly) :D Unfortunately, I did manage to put a little hole in my new pants!! :( Thankfully, the hole is at the bottom & hardly noticeable.
Then we figured we better take a little walking bread & Jess texted Levi (The Raptor) to try to figure out which side of the lagoon we needed to go to get to the cemetery. So we figured we better take a pic of us nice and cold!!! VERY cold! It was super windy out in the open by the lagoon.
Then we went back over to the other side of the river & ran for the car!!!
Then I had a super long drive home where Josie slept like a baby & I jammed out to some country music! Now Im totally beat & ready for bed. Oh wait!!! The special edition to The Notebook is on tv. I better watch that!! :D
That's all for now. Stay tuned! :D
