Running on the green

Whew, what a FANTASTIC trip. The only bummer is that I forgot batteries for my digital camera so I was unable to take pictures of our running adventures. I had a great time this past weekend. Started off with an excellent drive up north. I stayed awake the entire time, I was so excited to get up to the cool weather. Once we got there, I got to see Grandma and Grandpa and Uncle Koda. Koda is also a yellow lab. He is a little scared of me. I get so happy to see him that I charge at him and it scares him so he barks at me, which scares me and makes me bark. Ah man, but I love him, I think we will work out our differences one of these days. We spent Friday night just chillin'. And woke up the next day to muddy trails and rain. We did not let this spoil our fun though and we ended up going on a quick run in Greer, Az. It was beautiful. We ran up a forest road that over looked the town. The next day is when we got to go on an amazing trail run. The trail we ran on is 21 miles long, we did not run that far, but it was one of the best we have been on in North Eastern Arizona. I felt like I was running in Ireland. We ran across a very large meadow with mountains surrounding us. I read a sign that said we were in wolfe country so that was a little scary, although, I tried to pretend like it didn't bother me. Man oh Man, it felt good to run on the trails. I lept through puddles , jumped over rocks, and flew up and down the hills. It was amazing. I felt so refreshed when I was done. After our run we headed back down to Phoenix. I slept the entire way dreaming of my run. I can't wait until it cools off here so we can spend more time on the trails and I can run wild!

ooo awesome! too bad that you didn't get any pictures. I bet it's so green up there right now. Wolf country - Johnny and I camped up near Greer one night and got to hear them. Wonderfully freaky.

Sounds like you had a great trip Timber! I'm fascinated by your interactions with your Uncle Koda. Hope it works out. Welcome home. :)
