Tonight I went on my first run up Blue Mtn since getting back from my ten day trip to Maine. I feel like I missed so much! I saw 7 wildflowers that have bloomed since I was gone. Pasqueflower, yellowbells, shooting stars, woodland stars, arrowleaf balsomroot, biscuit root, blue bells and buttercups (these were blooming before I left). I think there was one more - but I can't remember what it was.... I'll have to bring my camera next time to show you how amazing it is to see all these along the trail! Oh- I remembered what it was - sunflowers (they are about to pop!). The mountains are greening up and it is starting to really feel like summer around here.
What a wonderful run! It was an easy 5-6 miler but it was so nice to be back in the mtns. I plan on going again tomorrow night.
I would like to eventually get back into my normal routine of running in the morning and mtb or road biking in the evening. I still have laryngitis from last weekend - so when I run my throat feels SO dry. I need to work my way back into it.
