AZ Trail Run

Our final day in AZ held a trail run and a ride.

Miles and miles of open trails.

 Thankfully I did not trip and land on a cactus! 
Whoooo hooooo a successful run!

The ride was on a road that went on forever. Somewhere along this road I cracked. Multiple hard workouts and go-go-going had set in and I was 100% DONE. I turned around early and headed home. Ian later saw a Bobcat while riding home. I was bummed to miss this, but happy to be sitting in a chair in the sunshine when he returned.

You are so good about listening to your mind and body! I think it was good that you shortened the ride and got a little peace and quiet in before going back to work train work train...
