So after three weeks off running due to a niggle in my shin, yesterday morning a few of us set off on a 13 km trail run.  What bliss, what a pleasure, what an awesome feeling to be running through the forest on a fresh morning again.

I wont lie, the hills were tough, I have lost some of my fitness and i am a bit sore today but it is a good sore, it is a sore that reminds me of how blessed i am to live where we have forests on our doorstep, how blessed i am to have like minded running friends and how blessed i am to have a body that most of the time allows me to be a runner.
