Happy Trails To You

I’ve been trying to get myself to wake up early each morning and to enjoy the fresh air before work.  As you probably know already, I’m not a morning person, which makes it very difficult for me to confront the day before 10 or 11 in the morning.

But, as I can hear my mom saying in my head, I tend to waste some of the best hours of the day by sleeping so late.  So, the last few days I’ve managed to roll out of the covers by 7:30 and get on the Ojai Valley Trail.

The Trail is amazing.  It runs for more than nine miles and on any given day you’ll see bicyclists, walkers, joggers and even horses on the trail (yes, horses have a different trail nearby so we don’t step in their….).

Anyway, it’s been a great breath of fresh air. I’ve always been an exercise enthusiast, but I’ve usually gotten my work-out on the courts or in the gym.  It’s a bit of a switch-up for me to be exercising outdoors in the beautiful surroundings here on the Trail, and I’m really enjoying it.

Feeling a bit spoiled…and then feeling guilty that I’m only just NOW getting my act together to start appreciating the great ways to exercise outdoors. Where have I been all these years?
