Last Saturday I had my last long run until the North Face Endurance Challenge Half Marathon this coming weekend. I decided to treat myself and drive a little bit further than I normally do to a wonderful place called Burke Lake. The 4.5 mile trail goes around the lake and is mostly in the shade. After leaving the house I realized I didn't have my watch, I didn't mind though because I knew I'd enjoy the trail so much that it wouldn't matter. It was a perfect morning. I loved the smell of honeysuckles and feeling the gentle breeze. I was glad I forgot my watch and it was just the trees and me.
