Hiked Silver Star Mountain yesterday. It was gorgeous! Clear views of Mt St Helens, Mt Adams, Mt Hood, Mt Rainier, Mt Jefferson, and even saw North Sister peek out a tiny bit on the horizon. The roads leading up to the trailhead are pretty bad and not passable by anything without 4 wheel drive and good clearance, but they are working on the roads so hopefully more can make it up there soon. You can always park further out and hike in on the road. Ed’s Trail was my favorite. Very scenic, but could be a little scary if you are significantly scared of heights. Highly recommend this hike!
Visited Arizona last week and got in a few fun runs in the desert. Here are some highlights from my run in Saguaro National Park with @heyitshonore. Thanks for showing me your trails, babe! Will share a highlight reel of our Blacketts Ridge climb soon.
A little over 7 miles in our hike yesterday then a soak in the falls. Then it was a session with Jesse today. Three days of back to back training. That hasn’t happened in so long! Maybe since last summer. Legs were definitely tired today, but got in some good lifts anyway. Feeling good, better than I would have thought had I actually planned it. Tomorrow will definitely be a rest day.
How is your Sunday going?
I think I’ve mentioned before how I love watching the seasons change on the trail. Today the trail looked so much different than just a week ago! There were a couple of times that I wasn’t exactly sure how far along I was because my bearings were off with all the new growth. The trail is looking and sounding more alive. . I’ve managed to get in 3 runs in the past 7 days plus a session with Jesse. It’s the most I’ve been able to get in for awhile. Started running out of gas at the end of this one which felt really strange given how short it was. It will all come back in time, just like all of the green and sounds on the trail. 🌱💕
I love watching the seasons change on the trail especially on what I consider my “home” trail. About four months out from Hood to Coast and still only getting in 1-2 runs a week. I’ve been really struggling with routine since last summer. It’s the sum of a lot of things and I’ve been trying to be kind to myself and let it sort itself out. Anywho, got in almost an hour today on trails that are starting to burst with life again and I felt energized in a way that I haven’t in awhile. Hope your weekend was filled lots of energy and spring beauty.
