I wish I could say I finished strong. But I didn't. It was a bittersweet run. My body was achy from lack of sleep and the impending symptoms of on oncoming cold. My mind apparently stayed in bed. My legs felt fresh but my feet hurt. The trail was beautiful, though. It was oh so beautiful. And as tired as I felt, I couldn't help but marvel at how lucky I was to run among the colors.
Run hard. Run happy. We'll be out there cheering for you.
