Within five minutes of dropping off 'detail boy' at soccer practice I'm
hiking in the beautiful, peaceful foothills of Colorado.
Fortunate, I know!
Twice a week for an hour and a half this is my favorite spot to exercise.
(The consistent piece of advice from seasoned bloggers is to be authentic, so...)
I would never in a million years relax on this bridge or stop and gaze
at the deer and elk that share the surroundings.
I'm just not a stop and smell the roses type.
Nope, I rock and roll up that mountain as fast as I can,
sweating, pushing myself to beat last week's time, loving every minute
and being thankful for the beauty I enjoy!
As the path fades behind me I'm greeted by dusk, the city lights of Denver
and the realization my evenings hiking are about over for the year,
as the days have grown too short.
Enjoy the weekend friends.... in whatever way brings you joy!
