Join Me On My Mezamashii Run
My friend Sue calls them “run forever” runs. Mizuno calls them “mezamashii” runs. It’s those runs that make you feel glad to be alive, when everything feels great, when you feel like you could run forever. I had one of those runs this weekend, and I’d love for you to be my running partner and join me on my mezamashii run.
I’m wearing my Zensah compression socks and new Mizuno Wave Sayonara for performance and visibility for our o’dark-thirty start time. 🙂
Even though it is late August, it is cool (in the low 60s) with low humidity. Perfect weather and a beautiful sunrise set the stage for a brilliant run.
This is the view from our starting point on the Mt. Vernon Trail.
I think you will understand why it is my favorite place to run.
We are only 3/4 mile into our run, when this sky catches our attention.
The National Park Service is repairing some of the wooden bridges on the trail. There are a few places where we are diverted onto mulch paths, but about 3 miles into our run we are detoured through an adjacent neighborhood.
The detour lasts about a mile, and then we are back on trail. I think this bridge was redone not too long ago. I love how the sunlight–and the river view–peeks through the trees.
We puzzle over this banquet. Have we found The Giving Tree?
Ferrero Rocher chocolates, oranges and apples, a bottle of soda (?),
sliced cantaloupe, Hershey Kisses, grapes, peaches
We make one more photo stop on the way back. This marsh just looks so peaceful!
We hit 10 miles before we reach our starting point
but since we are still feeling strong, we keep running.
Thanks for joining me!
Do you have time to grab a cup of coffee?
