I fear the era of the pink tree is nearing it's end. Another week or two at the very most. Which makes me sad, because I like living in the world of the Lorax. Truffula trees EVERYWHERE! Oh well, I'll enjoy this brief period of spring while it lasts.
This run was about as unzenlike as can be. I was constantly distracted and stopping taking pictures of trees, pickup trucks, and flag football games. Plus, my blood sugar was a little low by the end, so by the time I made it home, my legs felt jello-y and tired. It's not that it was a bad run, I enjoyed it quite a bit, it's just that I was constantly distracted and never fully got into a groove.
Although, at one point, I discovered a giant open area which was surrounded by back yards. It was an open area of which I was fully unaware, although I doubt it'll make it into the regular running rotation, as it was a little difficult to get into, and a lot of the paths were little more than bunny trails. Still, I always enjoy finding new surprises in areas I thought I knew, it means the world remains larger than I expect. Something I enjoy remembering when I feel like I've been there and done that.
