Saturday morning I woke up extra early to fit in a long run. It was finally a little cooler out and very welcomed. 13 miles later I headed out to Shenandoah National Park to hike and check into the cabin.
It was cute but also kinda creepy…I kept thinking the lighting made it a look a little serial killer-ish. How else do I describe it? hah
Then onto the trails! The weather was beautiful, temps were cool and there were too many trails to choose from.
Dinner was at Big Meadows Lodge (where I stayed) and it was outstanding.
Wine of course, cheese plate, oven roasted chicken, mashed potatoes and green beans.. oh and blackberry cobbler.
Wine back on the porch was so relaxing.
Sunday morning I rolled out of bed to catch the sunrise…
After breakfast I headed out again for more hiking. I felt accomplished since I did a variety of hikes that included waterfalls, rock climbing and summits with views.
Today I’m doing my first workout of mile repeats. Wish me luck, these are going to hurt. Especially after all the hiking…my poor calves.
