Fall folliage tour 2008




Soooooo I did my 5k Friday night and I followed it up Saturday morning with a nice 3.5 hour hike through beautiful Lake Minnewaska(New Paltz, NY). It's about a 2 hour drive from my house. What a great day! The hike was tough cause my quads were pretty fatigued from the 5k and then all the up and down hills were reeking havoc on my legs....but man was it worth it...felt great....

Participating in activities like running and hiking makes me truly understand that we are not supposed to be in a big building running on a belt driven contraption...we are meant to be outside...doing it....nothing beats getting outside and moving..no gym no treadmill no spinbike....

I couldn't agree with you more. The roads have to be dangerous for me to NOT run outside. As far as I'm concerned, that's what goretex is for.

Besides, have you ever run when it's snowing out? Or gone snowshoeing with no one else around? Nothing can beat it. Even just a cold cold day in January. Whatever the weather is, it's always better outside.
