Runner’s High 2022

I can barely begin to describe the joy I felt yesterday during and after my first trip back to the woods to run post-Covid. Other trail runners will understand.

Running alone with my thoughts among the tall pines and crunching through the leaf-covered dirt gave me a true runner’s high that lasted all day.

The muddy Brazos River was wearing her winter colors and looking beautiful against the clear blue sky.

I tear up thinking about it. These trees and trails and deer and birds feel like home to me.

You just don’t know what you have until you almost lose it . I thought maybe COVID had taken the ability to run from me , but I’m back! Looking forward to next time.


  1. I’m not a trail runner but I do get it. Being outside in nature keeps me sane and calibrated. It puts the noise and nonsense of culture into perspective. Glad you had a great day out in God’s creation. DM

I'd love to hear your thoughts!
