Nine Hundred Thirty-Two
April 12, 2019
5.32 Miles in 56:05
Mood: The dichotomy of truck driving schmucks and very good horses.
Soundtrack: The Avett Brothers "True Sadness" and Father John Misty "I Love You, Honeybear"
After a few days of cold and rain/snow/sleet, the Highline Canal trail was in a fragile state, and some schmuck drove a truck over several miles of it leaving deep muddy grooves in the trail. I was annoyed at said schmuck, as those grooves in the trail were both unsightly and also made for slightly more difficult running. (Very slight, but my annoyance was real.)
I love this particular overlook and these four very good horses that live here. They were having a nice breakfast of whatever horses eat out of big metal tins, and I said hi to them as I stopped to take their photo. This was a lovely interaction. I give these horses five stars. These horses would never drive a truck over a muddy trail.
