Even before the first Bluebonnet and Indian Paintbrush patches appears along the highway, you will see smiling runners out taking advantage of the early Spring weather in Texas . Today the trails at Stephen F. Austin State Park were alive with the colors of the unique species, trailus runnerus. All ages, shapes and sizes of these energetic, social and motivated creatures were out enjoying the dry trails and perfect running temperatures. Some appeared to be engaged in training for a race and others were just doing what comes natural, moving relentlessly forward on their own two feet amongst the trees. I joined them for a little over an hour, solo, but part of the family , acknowledged with smiles, comments, and the shared pleasure of being in nature that trail runners , deer, possums, squirrels and birds understand. Enjoy the pics!
Happy Running! Are you training for anything?
