This week I have been thinking about opportunity cost, integrity, and metrics for performance. The opportunity came up to run 20 miles over the beautiful and steep terrain of Wendover Woods, and so having enjoyed fresh air and soft earth, I have not written cohesive thoughts about the intended topics.
Things I particularly enjoyed about trail running:
The technical challenge of judging each foot placement to stay upright.
Great conversation both on the trails and during the rest stops.
Using different muscles compared with the repetitive motion of road running.
Beautiful foliage and clean air.
