I headed out at 10:30am onto the powerlines. They were soggy, as anticipated, and I hadn't gone much more than 1/2 a mile before my feet were wet. At least it was warm out. It was lightly misting and still windy, but much better than yesterday so that was nice! As I neared the end of the powerlines, I knew that I should probably add the additional 1.5 miles on before turning around, just so I didn't wimp out and only run 5 miles. I figured I would run down to the road and take it from there. When I got to the road, I realized I was only a short distance from a park that has a few trail signs, and which we are always driving by and commenting on how we should stop and check them out. So I figured, what the heck.
The park has a great sledding hill in the wintertime, and the trailhead leads you up to the top of this hill and then smaller trails fan out from there. I just sort of meandered around on the trails to check it out - the trails twist and turn on themselves in the woods and all pretty much end in surrounding neighborhoods. Not much running per se, but nice nonetheless! By the time I got back to the trailhead, I realized my run would be a bit longer than anticipated if I headed back on the powerlines, so instead I took the roads back to Highland Green and then turned onto the powerlines for the final stretch. Overall, despite having a bit of a cold, I felt good throughout and it was fun to explore some new trails!
