We had a fantastic time camping this weekend with plenty of hiking, swimming, eating, drinking and campfires. The weather was perfect and the park was beautiful.
On both Saturday and Sunday morning, hubs and I set out for a run through the woods. There was a trail from our campground all the way around Cyprus Lake for a nice 5K loop. The trail was well marked and easy to follow along the shore-line, with a constant view of the lake.
The trail was relatively mild in some spots…
And more rugged in others:
We stopped for a few photo ops along the way:Can you spot me?
On this very rare occasion, I found myself leading the way with hubs trailing behind me. I have no fear on the trails and loved every minute of it, bounding through the woods, leaping over and around obstacles, while he stepped carefully along behind me. At one point, as I looked back over my shoulder to see how far behind he was, hubs called out “I’m a Ferrari, not a Jeep!” Apparently, I’m a Jeep!
It was the perfect way to start both days. After Friday’s long run, the variety of terrain and slower pace felt amazing on my legs. Jumping straight in the lake after each run felt pretty great too!
I hope everyone had a great weekend! I’ll be catching up soon.
