Day 2 of the #chasethebirdchallenge was a success this morning. I put the kids on the bus and headed up the mountain to Cooper’s Rock for a little trail 5K. Started at the overlook and then went out the roadside trail to the reservoir loop. A quick trip around the pond and back onto the roadside trail to the overlook.
I love running out here and usually have some of my best on these trails. Weather was perfect and it wasn’t very busy. I did dial it back just a bit because the trails were covered in leaves and I didn’t want a trip to the ER for my birthday!
Sidenote: I’ve never been a vest girl. I mean, when you get hot where do you put it? Don’t your arms get cold? Well, on a whim I bought the Gilman vest from Oiselle because I found it on Amazon for $33. It went on it’s maiden run this morning. I’m now a believer. I didn’t overheat, yet my core was comfy warm despite the wind. There just might be more vests in my future.
