I woke up early Saturday morning to visit Haw Ridge, which is where I did a lot of training when we lived in Tennessee. It’s a beautiful area in Oak Ridge, TN with 30 miles of picture-perfect single track trails.
I’ve run these trails so many times, they feel like home. I was enjoying the run, soaking up the scenery and totally bit it. Flat on my face. After six years of trail running this was a first for me. I’ve tripped, but have always been able to catch myself. Quite the ego buster.
It was a great run and a great weekend. It was a reminder of why we really want to get back to Knoxville.
While I was working on Friday, my wife and her parents took our daughter on hike up in the Smokies. They hiked up to Spruce Flat Falls which is approximately a two mile round trip. My daughter absolutely loved it! My wife brought our daughter’s crocs so she could enjoy the water at the falls.
Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
