Time Out for Sanity
i've been spending my time looking at topo maps of the area and dreaming of running routes when i am not out in the hills. this spring has been so beautiful. i've run over forty miles in the mountains each week for the last three weeks, and i honestly don't think i've ever been happier. which is in stark contrast to how my manager viewed me at work as "angry and frustrated". makes me really think i did the right thing by leaving that job, because it was turning me into a really unhappy person.
i feel so bad for the dogs on the days that i don't take them out with me. yesterday i did a 12 mile run right on the border of the salt lake city watershed area. 12 miles is a bit far for them to go every day anyway. i had just taken them for a 6-miler the day before. it was such a fantastic view of the Wasatch Range, and it was on part of the 100-mile course that i will be on later this summer. it got me pretty pumped to participate in the race again this year.
enjoy the photos. it's a magical place.
