After not running for over a week, I was grateful for Scott’s invitation to run with him along the West River Trail. We eased into the day, starting our run at about 9am. Initially, we drove into some rain showers but could see the sun shining ahead of us in Vermont. We hoped to get us some of that.
And we did! We got into a nice groove and never saw anyone on the way out. It was a peaceful way to start the day and I was happy to be running. The sound of the rushing West River, the brilliant sunshine, and the mild November temperatures provided a perfect canvas for our run.
We turned around at the four mile mark and that’s when the photographic shenanigans began. Scott has such a natural way of making the run fun. I ended up with an additional .5 to my distance because I needed to “run back there and run towards me!” so Scott could get a particular shot. So our return 4 miles became all about the photography and silliness. I’ll save you from the many shots taken and just post my favorites:
