The other day I just wasn’t feelin another road run for the week. So I ended up going to a local nature preserve to run on their wooded trails. I’m glad I did. Mainly, because doing so makes you foxy.
Never mind the sweaty man laying down in the woods.
Trail running always seems to refresh me. It’s good to get in nature. It’s good to dodge plants and rocks and critters and mountain bikers and hikers and other runners. It totally turned my mood around. Before the run I was all like…
I had a real chip on my shoulder. #tortilla #notpotato
After the run I went and met some peeps for yoga. It was a really good practice. And of course, from a couple weeks ago – you know what yoga does to you…
That’s right, I got an extra dose of foxiness that day. Watch out world!
Anyone else ever take a running ‘break’ by hitting trails? Every double dip your workouts?
PS. I apologize for posting such foxy (and not at all creepy photos).

I got back on the track this morning for some lappage. I did 400’s and 200’s. It was fun to go short and fast. Only problems were the clouds of gnats I had to plow through.
It was gross, but luckily I’ve been through this before and I was careful to keep my mouth closed and my eyes shielded with shades…Unlike my buddy Salt who had one burrow into her brain the other day.
Afterwards I was stretching and realized how hawt I must look. So I snapped a pic…
My wife called this picture creepy and I’m pretty sure I weirded out the maintenance dudes who were mowing the grass near by. Whatever haters! Hahaha!
Go back and look at the photo closely – See the black dots on my face and neck – GNATS! They were stuck to my
sweaty glistening skin from head to ankle.
I really don’t get why they hover over sidewalks and tracks. What’s the benefit…For them or me???? I’m sure it will go down in gnat lore as the ‘Great Massacre of 2014’.
Either way, I enjoyed the workout. I’m trying to transition my track sessions to the mornings now due to the heat of day, and since school is out I had it all to myself! Yuppers! Hopefully gnat season will end soon!
How bout you? Do your workouts make you foxy? Ever been part of a gnat massacre? Be honest, that photo is hawt, isn’t it? 😉
