Today we went for a long run. Tuesday Ken outran me and I thought I outran myself. My run/walk was an amazing 6 miles. After Ken said our next run would be 10 miles. My reaction way “No way!” But I relented with “I’ll see how I do.” Well Ken exceeded his goal: 11.5 miles! And I hung in there for 10.2 miles!!!! Wooohoo!!! Yes I am sore. Walking hurts. But the best of the bike trail sights were yet to come and because I kept going I got to be there to share them with you. I think you will say: “Now that’s what I’m talking about!” :-]
Rivers and trails, flowers and fieldsStandard
Yesterday we went out on the Truckee bike trail that passes meadows, bridges, creeks and the Truckee river headed to Lake Tahoe. Ken trains for half marathons so, because he would run ahead, double back behind me to pick me up he probably ran 7or 8 miles to my 6. Yes, I’m rather surprised and delighted I went the distance with hilly terrain at 7,000 foot elevation. But I did a run/walk and stopped often to the snap these shots.
Wasn’t that an awesome trail?!!! The air so clean and clear and fragrant you want to drink it!
Trails ‘N Tales: The Ghosts of Cape Cod PastStandard
What a day of adventure and delightful discoveries! We traveled to the most eastern tip of the Cape. Lovely bike and walking trails to the shore led to an early coast guard station. The docents, Pat and Richard Ryder impressed us with stories of the valor of men who daily risked their lives
The pilgrim monument in Provincetown is 250 feet tall. It is actually where the pilgrims first landed.
Sunset reflected pink and blue in the river water outside our windows when we returned to our room. Like a sweet benediction of praise for the care and faithfulness of our Great God. He has shown us so much beauty in His creation; the inspiration of selfless men laying down their lives to save others; and the many kindnesses we have received from others all along this trip. To God be the Glory.
