This morning, I woke up and drove to Trinity Park for a quick run.
Trinity Park is a park sponsored by Fort Worth that runs basically throughout the Metroplex. Their are endless miles of trails that feel completely safe.
And it runs along the Trinity River, which is simply beautiful.
It's not that far away from my school, so I usually run there. But seeing as I can only run for about an hour at the longest right now, I have to turn around once I get a mile into the park.
So this morning I drove there so I could start my run in the park and explore more! It was such a good idea. I got to run with the sun rising in beautiful weather, towards downtown. Watching the river and hearing the wind made for the perfect background noise, considering my iPod was dead.
When I hit the turn around point, I was hoping that I would at least have ran 30 minutes total by the time I got back to my car. But I didn't think that was likely. Much to my surprise, when I got back to my car, I had been running for about 50 minutes! Yay for long runs that don't feel like long runs!
It was a beautiful morning and I wish I had time to do that every day. Needless to say, I will start going there more often! And next time, I'll take pictures so I can show y'all.
