When I first started running, back in 2000, there weren't a lot of portable music options, so I ran without music until mp3 players became a thing. I think I got my first one in 2004, but until then I ran with just my own thoughts for company. Today I forgot to grab my headphones and I didn't realize until I got to the trailhead...so I ran without music. I've forgotten how nice that is...I still think through stuff with music, but the quiet solitude was exactly what I needed today to settle my thoughts. (PS, my form looks awful in this photo...) #run#runnersofinstagram#murdockcanaltrail#skirtsportsambassador#skirtsports#lottabreezecapri
Not everything that glitters is gold. Humans use the restrooms. Dog owners bag and carry. Horse riders?! Go ahead have your way whenever and wherever your steed is so inclined. Don’t worry it’ll get cleaned up probably by some late night rollerbladers who hit it before they say it. Keep #murdockcanaltrail classy and dungfree.
Instagram managed to somehow mess up my sunrise pic from my last post.. 😒 so rude! I thought it deserved to be re-posted ☺️ It was beautiful, I enjoy taking in all of the gorgeous scenery on our runs! 🌄 #beUTAHful#murdockcanaltrail
I have this problem every year: my running motivation slacks off for a bit when the kids go back to school. Yesterday I skipped my Y hike but today I was inspired by everyone else posting about their runs. I made a new playlist (heavy on the Depeche Mode as I am sad I missed the concert last night), put on my favorite running skirt (the black Cascade) and hit a running path (Murdock Canal). Knocked out five miles and I'm soooooo glad I resisted my urge to go back to bed! #runhappy#run#skirtsportsambassador#skirtsports#realwomenmove#murdockcanaltrail#utahcounty#getmoving#goanyway
