On Still Preferring the Trail Behind My House
June 30, 2013 § 2 Comments
I don’t write about my personal life much on this here blog, for all kinds of reasons. But I am posting the above video, which is a (yes I know too long) compilation of clips from the trail behind my house. If you’re going to watch, be sure to do so in 1080p (click the little gear icon on the bottom right; find the HD setting under “quality,” and don’t feel bad if you didn’t know you could do that). I still prefer running on the trail to tripping over inconsequential mad after inconsequential mad on the internet, which makes every day pretty excellent; I’ve been waking up pathologically early to work on book revisions (hence the break from posting), and then after a few hours head out for 6ish miles here. Really not a bad way to start the human part of my day.
One thing I will say about my feelings — the stretch of trail at 3:22 is quite possibly my very favorite sight. Few things make me happier than running under a canopy of leaves with the sun streaming through, in fact in terms of overall life goals, having access to this sort of thing is in my top 3.
Oh but that’s not enough internet for you? Fine.
