Find some beautiful place to get lost

That's my goal for tomorrow. My last big race of the year, Tranquility Lake 50K. And following the theme of the Thanksgiving month, I have to say that I'm so thankful for all that I've learned this year. I've learned to slow down and enjoy this running business. Sometimes your body forces you to do that, but if you follow your body's lead, you might just learn a thing or two in the process and appreciate the journey even more. Yes, it's fun to chase numbers, but it's also just as fun to forget about all of that and run free.

I will be giving it my all tomorrow and definitely trying to not get lost (at least not course-wise), but this song captures the peace that running in the woods gives me.


There isn't any other place I'd rather spend tomorrow morning kicking up leaves and inevitably face planting a time or two. Not getting lost but getting lost all at the same time.
