This morning I was able to get in my first run in a while. I did my 12 mile trail run that utilizes the 8 mile Vin Gormley Trail. I kept it slowish and tried to have fun. A few "friendly" dogs and trail runners out there today. Are St. Bernards and black lab/pit bull mixes really friendly? The pit lab was awfully excited about grabbing my water bottle out of my hand. At least it gave me a bit of an adrenaline rush to help finish the hilly ending. My body felt pretty tired after about eight miles and my overall time was slow, but I'm happy that I could run twelve trail miles not in great shape. My plan is for longer runs and the occasional speed workout to get prepared for the Pisgah 23K.
