There are many reasons why I love to hit the trails. It’s always a fun adventure that focusses my attention on the world around me while permitting my imagination to run wild. Besides, running on the uneven surfaces and frequent inclines is a fantastic way to build aerobic fitness and toughen up the legs, all while being spellbound by ever changing scenery.

Today, I set out to explore some new territory after work. Based on what I found, I can only conclude that I have unsuspectingly ventured through a secret portal into Middle Earth…

I followed a little stream…


… ran through a tunnel…


… crossed over (and under) several bridges…


… ran under a waterfall…


… and ended up on a mountain top!


Days like today always remind me that I have so much to be grateful for. I am so lucky to live in such a beautiful corner of our world.  I am blessed with a strong and healthy body that allows me to explore the world around me, an inquisitive mind that always challenges me to keep moving forward and a heart full of wanderlust. Life can be amazing!

    • Hey and thanks for reading this and taking the time to leave a comment! I live in bonny Scotland. This particular run took me up Maspie Den near Falkland. While there are some fantastic trails right on my doorstep, I was blown away by the magic of that little den yesterday. I just wanted to explore some new territory on my way home from work and stumbled upon this absolute gem. Awesome!
