Social Distancing, My Favorite!

TRAIL RUNNING MEMOIR 3/22/2020

Fuel:  banana & jerky

Noticing:

Found great single track today & big coyote prints.

Mountain Bluebirds are friendly & curious.

Three natural heart shapes.

It is very challenging to eat jerky on an uphill run, it’s hard to breath & chew at the same time!

Someone drank a Bud Light every half mile & threw out the empty can; I saw three.

Fishing spots were full & Montana’s dirt roads were very populated with the COVID-19 development.

Found a beautiful flat mountain to have a picnic on & teach yoga.

Evidence of mice watering.  They tunnel under the ice & snow (see picture).  They also tunnel under grass & dirt to avoid predators.

Contemplating:  My odds of getting COVID-19 with three days nursing vs a tick born disease after three days of trails! Yes, it looks like spring on the trail.  The grass is coming in.

I love trail running, have for over 22 years.  I love the wind, dirt, snow, & sun.  Today, the wind blew around & caressed my ankles.  The sun felt great, warming my black running tights, then my muscles.  I worked on embodiment.  I am incorporating embodiment into my yoga classes tomorrow.  Embodiment is a present moment awareness that is felt in the body.  This practice has helped me through some very difficult times.

I am also incorporating self compassion, the practice of goodwill, not good feelings.  With self compassion we mindfully accept that the moment is painful, & embrace ourselves with kindness, & care in response, remembering that imperfection is part of the shared human experience.

Special thanks to my hubby for riding with me & keeping me safe.
