Welcome to an Arizona sunset. It’s a beautiful thing to behold, isn’t it?
I needed to start finding some running routes near the southeast Valley and decided on a old route at Skyline High School where I used to run to compete with my high school cross country team. It was an absolutely gorgeous evening. The sunset was perfect, there was a wind, and I believe the temperature was actually below 100 degrees! I ran a little over two miles before I decided I was ravished and needed some fuel! I drank plenty of water during the day, but didn’t eat enough. I was also feeling extremely tight. I stretched for at lesat 10 minutes before my run, but my legs felt heavy and tight still – so odd.
I had so much fun on this run though. I heart running on canals and grass trails and sadly there weren’t very many of those options in Alabama. It’s so refreshing running on grass – and it’s better on my shins!
Just look at that picture! Amazing end to a great run. If this doesn’t persuade you to come run with me, I don’t know what will. 🙂 Keep clicking while you’re kicking.
