Deb & I warming up after 6 sweet miles

8 women, 2 dogs, 6 miles, 1 gallon coffee. That’s a recipe for a great morning…and it was! Run Momma Run’s first trail run gathering was, well, dark at first. For some reason I thought sunrise was around 6:45am, so I planned the run for 7:00. Fortunately, the first mile or so of trail 5 on Mt. Pisgah is dirt and gravel, so the one head lamp we had sufficed to get us through to sunlight. While we waited on the sun, we were treated to a hooting owl that seemed to get closer and closer as we hopped rocks and splashed through a few muddy puddles – perfect for an almost Halloween morning. Once we made it out into the grassy fields on the edge of the arboretum, the sun lit up the foggy clouds and we could see our way to the east gate. We stopped to take a picture mid-way and re-introduce ourselves since we could scarcely tell who was who when we started out. 6 miles later, we were warmed up, sipping coffee and swapping plans for runs and races. Thanks for a fantastic morning, ladies. You rock!

  1. I LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS! I’ll work on my mileage and join you next time, promise. For real! Or hey, maybe we can plan a 3 mile loop? Cause I can do that right now.

  2. That was so much fun, Laura! LOVE the video! Didn’t even realize that was happening. What a fun run and a fabulous group of women. Thank you!!

  3. Great video! Thanks for sharing. I’m bummed I missed it (and the confession!) but I know there will be another trail run. Looking forward to joining the next one.
