Asheville in the spring is amazing. It's perfect outside right now. In the 70s, sunny, birds a'singing, flowers a'blooming. A runner's dream.
Since I plan on doing a trail run in the fall, I decided to check out a trail 20 minutes from my apartment at the Bent Creek Experimental Forest.
I just read there's a 6 mile loop from the trailhead and with any luck I can figure out how to follow that the next time I head out. And for the hot summer days, there's also a lake for swimming.
Too good to be true? Oh well, there's the whole running part. It's easier than when I started, but I still have a looooong way to go to get to 13.1 miles.
On that note, TWICE this week I've seen 13.1 bumper stickers. A little "get moving" message from the universe to me.
