What a wonderful week of weather we have had and are looking forward too. I did finally get a chance to run after a week and a half of no workouts. The stars aligned (or more like I was able to skate out of work at 5 - which never happens) and I headed out for a slow 3 miler (60 - 70 % MHR).
Ohio becomes alive when the weather breaks, or as my student who is from Chile says, "You appreciate the weather so much more here because it stinks for 5 - 6 months of the year."
I really enjoy where I live (not the house but the location), it is in the valley and when I look out my living room window all I see is a large cascading hill - which I refer to as my mountain. I also live a short walk/jog from Sand Run Jogging Trail and this is where I headed out yesterday. Although I brought my camera with me (I am determined to take more pictures), I got lost in my head during the run and forgot to take a single snapshot. So I will leave you with a couple of professional shots of Sand Run and what I get to see in the summer (the leaves are not out completely).

Jogging Trail Bench - look at the green!
I hear a lot of people comment on how much they hate Ohio (poor economy and rough winters can make a person jaded) but really, how could you hate Ohio? It keeps me painfully aware of reality during the winter and by the time spring and summer are here; I take not one sunny day, leaf and smile for granted. Plus we have an AMAZING park system and outdoor activity community! :)
