Trail Run–Little Presque to Wetmore

The trail held a couple of surprises today!

Today, I attended Farmer’s Market and picked up veggies for the week. I had intended for today to be a rest day, physically. I had “land” physical therapy on Thursday and Friday I had a “pool.” Yesterday I had a migraine headache. Cooler day, slower Saturday good for nourishing the body. But the cooler temps enticed me o the trails. I chose a lakeside run on trail.

Parking at Little Song Bird just off County Road 550 allows me a slow warm-up as I head toward Little Presque parking lot. My knee was taped for stability and a quick walk informs my body where my knee “is” for the run. I decided a nice slow pace with stops for photos would be appropriate but I also wanted to challenge my status with this injury? Just how was my strengthening going? So I took the trail toward Wetmore which is complete with two staircases, and many roots.

The surprises. White Chairs along the side of the path. Musicians with instruments. A whole wedding!

We are blessed with this beautiful land, the Great Lake of Superior, and love!

Also, I’m blessed with a great physical therapy team that is helping my knee stability!

Wild Runs

I love trail running, this photo was taken on the North Country Trail at Lil’ Presque. I ran up and down this particular section at varying speeds to work on my technical abilities with roots. I had a blast!

I’m finding my place among the pines again, growing and healing. I’m reaching for the sunshine. Training for that 10K in August! Lil’ Presque and songbird is one of my fave places to run. A mix of mossy root filled trails, sand, beach, and more. I feel complete after a workout here.
