Robins warbled from the treetops as K and I headed into the forest this morning. A distinct chill permeated the air but the sun rapidly warmed us when we climbed out of the trees.
Thank goodness that I can still move around, riding my bike and hiking with my dogs out in nature. Otherwise, I might succumb to the temptation to feel sorry for myself.
Today, I kept K's running time short to let her paw recover from yesterday's longish ride. After I rode with her, I headed out solo into a truly beautiful day. Look at that trail! I can't possibly feel forlorn when I can whoosh along a trail like this one in utter solitude.
I spent most of my afternoon lying on a heating pad, trying to keep the back spasms at bay. But, as the afternoon wound down, the Duo let me know that it was time for our sunset hike. As we set out, R ran like the wind with his signature teeth and long tongue leading the way!
And the sunset was sublime.
