I had forgotten how much I enjoyed off road running. Dodging limbs, pine cones and mud, instead of cars and trucks. Just me and the ducks,geese, and rabbits. Though I haven't seen any, there is even a sign that says beware of alligators. I had forgotten how fast time flys when you are concentrating on each step. And no looking over my shoulder to make sure some nut driving 50 mph through the neighborhood is about to hit me. Though I'm sure I will be pounding the pavement again, I will definitely be looking forward to my jaunts around the lake. above is a picture I took just off the trail.
