… Is absolutely gorgeous! Heading out into the Virginia woods, 3 miles off of the main road, and far from any large city or main thoroughfare makes for sensory heaven. Feeling the grit of country gravel under my feet, the sweet smell of the trees, all while taking in the sounds of birds chirping, woodpeckers drilling, and the soft wind blowing through the trees. A change of scenery is most definitely therapeutic, and running in the seclusion of nature without the noise of everyday suburbia takes it to a whole new level. Got 4.2 glorious miles in today. Happy running!
