The Verdict....

After running the trail today, I decided that I for sure love running outside over the treadmill. It was a bit warm today, but I love the nice breeze, the beautiful fields, the occasional deer and bunnies hopping by, and the fact that I can actually see my progress!
This is a photo of my trail, I'm very lucky to live basically across the street from the trail head, it's 4.6 miles total, which one day soon I'll be running in it's entirety, but for now, I just run 1.5 miles out and back. It has .25 mile markers and is usually not too busy when I go.
There's something so freeing about being able to run outside and enjoy a nice late summer day.
When it starts snowing again, I'll be back on the old treadmill!


  1. oh, and today I was able to keep my miles around 10:30! yay!

  2. That's great Ash! And trails are way awesome on your legs.

  3. That's very cool. I think you are in NJ, right? Where is this trail? It looks awesome and I'm a runner too.

  4. Darn, I was hoping I could find something that pretty in NJ. Oh well. Looks like a great run. Enjoy it!

  5. Looks beautiful, enjoy it while you can! I hate treadmills too. Boo.
