Having a summer birthday and a husband who knows how much I love the outdoors generally leads to something wonderful outside and where we get to enjoy nature purely. This year that meant some awesome trail running along the Ridgeline Trail where you get to see many of Utah's ski resorts all at once, it was amazing.
As I ran along the trail I recognized how great it is that I have lived another year in which I got to enjoy my health and enjoy what my body can do. I got to go exploring on my own two feet; your two little feet have so many more options and neat little places to find than a four big wheels.
My husband and I headed out this morning with a vague idea of where we were going. We had our water, trail shoes, and each other. With those three things I knew we would have an adventure and I was sure to have a memorable day.
The life I lead on a daily basis allows me to enjoy all that this life and this world have to offer. I eat clean (most of the time, who wants a life without a margarita or some cookie dough every once in a while?), I exercise (running being one of my core modes of exercise), and I do it all as a mom and a wife (love tends to add a lot of balance in life). This means that when my amazing husband whisks me away for a night and follows it up with some trail running I know that it is going to be fantastic and thoroughly enjoyed day!
