Our first trail run + one of the best days of the year
Happy National Coffee Day!! This is like the best day ever! I will be sure to celebrate all day.
Running shoes + coffee. Is there a better pair? I hope you are nodding your head yes to this.
I convinced the boys to hit up the trail with me so I could throw down some miles. Remember I’m a chicken? I think a snake or mountain lion is going to stalk me.
The boys walked while I ran a couple loops.
As I was passing them, Bam started running after me. I was stoked he wanted to be my running buddy, but a little worried he would see a butterfly or squirrel and chase after it. You see, he has the attention span of a gnat. But to my surprise he kept up. He did stop a couple times to sniff, but quickly caught up when I called him.
He even led the way a couple times.
I freaking loved trail running, and can’t wait to log some more miles with the Bamstagram!
I did a 5K in a little over 30 minutes. From what I hear, you don’t really focus on splits or time while trail running because the terrain is so varied. That is perfect because lately I’ve just been focusing on loving the run. Though next time I will be smart and wear my Pro Compression socks as my legs were itchy the rest of the day.
Any trail runners out there?
What are your best tips for a new trail runners?
How are you celebrating National Coffee Day?
