Well today I had the day off and decided to do something that I have never done. I have not been very active lately due to the insane gout issue and my ankle has just been really sore but today that was all about to change.
I actually heard online that the park where BrittWhitFun and I got married had some really great trails for hiking and mountain biking so I decided to check it out. When I got there the park hardly had anyone there. I got my backpack that was full of water and a protein bar and an apple and started towards the trail.
The trail wrapped around a huge pond and was mostly flat. The first mile I got to go over a creek and some ramps. It was so nice to be out in nature and after the stressful week I had, it was great to find my own peace.
So my hike went from 30 minutes to an hour and then changed to two hours. I was tired but I wanted to finish the whole six mile trail. By the time I got back to the car I was exhausted and smelled bad. I loved it.
It felt so good to be active and to have some “me time”. I will be going back soon.
