Church of the Long Run

My version of church is to hit the trails for a long run. It’s a great way to get in touch with Mother Nature and reflect upon myself and things going on in my life. Today my running buddy, Kay, joined me for my long run. We both brought our cameras and took some good photos. We did 14 miles with lovely weather- overcast, foggy, and low 70’s for a high! I won’t bore you with too many words just pictures. Blog posts are more fun with pictures anyway.

Tall Grass anyone?


Is that a big foot sighting?


Maybe, but I’m guessing whatever it was had legs that felt like jello and really wanted to get back to the parking area.



  1. I do love photos :) Especially trail running photos!

  2. Kind of glad you didn't write anymore than you did. I think I may have been lazy and never got around to my account of the morning if you had. ;)

  3. I didn't have enough mental power to do more than add some photos. Glad I was able to give you some motivation! I think you did a better job on writing it up than I could have this time.

  4. First, new to your blog love running for "sanity and vanity" as both are important. And second, I too feel running is my church just wish I had beautiful trails like you do.

  5. Love your pics. Its probably kind of silly, but I was thinking about you and this post in particular when I went on my mini trail run adventure. You're very inspirational! Thanks. :)

  6. Glad I could inspire you! Strange to think about people I've never met IRL thinking of me while they run. Makes me feel like my blog is doing what I intended it to and that makes me happy!

  7. I simply love your photos...So inspiring.

  8. you have chosen a great trail to run,, nice place and photos!
