Trail Run Fail

Holler friends, happy Tuesday! It may be the worst day of the week, but at least tomorrow is Wednesday and then the week is almost over! I really hate how I constantly am wishing time away, but seriously what else is there to look forward to except the weekend?

Last night my sister and I ventured over to a local trail to try it out for our run. It is literally two minutes from our house, but yet neither one of us has ever gone. It’s a 285 acre nature preserve called 5 Mile Woods, and now I know why we never ran there before. While a majority of the trails are dirt paths, there are sections that remind me of the wooden planks on jungle gyms. You know, when one person jumps on one end the person on the other is bounced off. There were tree roots sticking out of the ground everywhere and fallen tree trunks blocking the path. It was more of an obstacle course than a trail run, and after 2.5 miles we made our way out of the woods.


Thumbs down for sure. We managed to do another mile on the streets before looping back to the car and calling at a day. Oh well, something is better than nothing right? Oh and that is the third shirt from the bf from my birthday. I told my sister I was wearing it so she wouldn’t lose me in the woods, haha. Uh, Col thought I was taking a picture here which is why she’s just posing like a weirdo but it was really a video

After our run, we had to rush home because I was getting a surprise visitor! The bf needs to drive down to VA Beach this week, so he stopped here for a night to hang out, hooray!

For dinner we enjoyed some frozen pizzas, one California Pizza Kitchen Margarita Pizza and one Red Baron Pepperoni Pan Pizza.

Girl and boy pizza. The pan pizza was thick and delicious and the CPK was just as good as always. After dinner. the three of us sat on the couch watching The Bachelorette reunion special with all the dudes who were kicked off. Extremely entertaining. I can’t wait until the season finale next week to see who Ali chooses.

Tonight I think my sister is going to accompany me to the 4:30 yoga class, yeah I’m giving it another shot. I need to find a way to incorporate cross training and I think this is a good one. I’ll be sure to report back and let you all know if the chanting is as prominent as last week.

I hope everyone has a great day and that Tuesday goes by quickly!

  1. I wish the week away like that too. Oh well.

  2. Meh, even if you have a tough run you still look FAB! Aren’t you LOVING the lulu shorts? I can’t wear anything else now. I’d marry them but that’s not legal in Indiana yet.

  3. I think after every “good” weekend, I have about 2 or 3 random videos like that on my camera because I’m the idiot that doesn’t realize I’m taping instead of taking a picture…. oops :p

  4. What a bummer about your trail run, but good for you for getting out there and trying it!! I’ve never done any trail running… something tells me it would be way harder than regular running!!

  5. Sorry the trail was no good, that’s a bummer! 3.5 miles is still a good run though!

  6. I’ve never run on a trail before – not so much because of the dirt and all that, but more because I’m too lazy to drive anywhere. Lol I run around the neighborhood and that’s it. I’m kinda boring!

    I love the bright green shirt!

  7. Even if the run wa a bust, at least you were stylin. Love the shorts!

  8. I haven’t had a Red Baron pizza in years. I dated a guy in college who was obessed with them and ate them all the time! I probably ate enough Red Baron pizza to last me a lifetime! haha!

  9. Yeah. I prefer the nice dirt tow paths. Trail running sounds exciting, but when it seems like you are going to twist an ankle or fall on your face and break yourself, pavement seems awfully appealing. That said, I think I’m going to head to a trail this afternoon. Inspired by this post!

  10. Too bad the trail run didn’t work out! I would love to find a nice trail around here. So nice to be in nature instead of along a road!

  11. Two weeks ago I ran on a trail near my house and I saw 3 deer and I didn’t like it. Wild animals just scare meee!!!! If I was in a car I would like seeing the deer..but the fact they were ON the trail and getting 2 feet away from – I’m outta there!

  12. It was entertaining. And I actually didn’t want to smack Casey upside the head. LOL I think he redeemed himself.

    Sorry the run wasn’t a good one. I know that would be a hazardous place for me.

  13. […] I’m going to see the boyfriend this weekend which is exciting.  Other than the one night he randomly came to town, I haven’t seen him since my birthday weekend!  That’s almost three weeks, […]
