I’ve been back in Nova Scotia for almost a week now and I’m starting to think that I should have been a better blogger and lined up some guest bloggers.
Blogging while on vacation is not easy.
I may have more time but that’s been spent with family and friends.
I’m overdue for a marathon recap.
I have another half-marathon on Sunday.
But I’m having a great time. The kids have adjusted to the four-hour time change and I’ve gotten to run in a new place.
This morning I went to explore a trail located at the end of my parents subdivision. This trail is new to me and didn’t exist when I was growing up. There was no trail map to look at so I wasn’t sure what to expect.
I thought I would be running on a nice path covered in rock.
But that soon turned into a rocky, rooty, and muddy trail.
Every so often the trail would be replaced by these wooden walkways.
The weather has been very rainy and wet so I was forced to turn around because of the mud and water. I’m in NS for another couple of weeks so I’m looking forward to checking it out again once it dries up.
And I’m more convinced than ever that my next running shoe purchase will be a pair of trail runners.
I’m off to Halifax tomorrow for a weekend of fun and the Bluenose Marathon with Meegan and Tara. The kids are heading to Nany and Poppy’s trailer for the first campfire of the season.
Ideally on Sunday I will finish the half-marathon with a new PR. But my main goal is to have fun.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to catch a few zzz while I wait for my mom
