Marathon Training Day #116: Running ravines

Heaven *is* a place on earth. Photo is from a month ago, hence the snow!

Today was my monthly pubruns group. The last time we met up, I wanted to run the Avoca Ravine through to Evergreen Brickworks, but it was too icy and snowy to even think about that. So, for April’s adventure, I suggested we try this again. Four of us showed up on a sunny and beautiful morning and we were off.

The run was perfect: not too long, not to fast and not too sunny. And we ended at the Brickworks, got coffee and waffles and sat in the sun. What’s not to love?

After that, I came home and finally set out on getting my backyard in order. Because of construction next door, last summer was pretty much a write-off in terms of outdoor enjoyment. As I spent hours puttering in the dirt and getting my hands dirty, I was so grateful to have my little piece of earth back.

Whether or not anything actually grows remains to be seen.
