Ditching the Gym!

Yesterday morning when I woke up, I just wasn't in the mood for the gym. The sky was a bright blue not a cloud in sight. So I decided to take my run outdoors. My little sister went with me and at the last moment I grabbed the camera. We did a 5 miler...but we ended up stopping a lot to take pictures. It was beautiful.
  
This thistle is as big as my face!! It was so beautiful.

   
I loved this old barn. Look at the rock foundation.
   
I spy 2 peacocks.
  
This is the trail we followed. It passes wet lands, farms and pastures.

  
I may go back today and see where the path ends.

I thought, Oh, no, Missy! Don't not go for a run! Don't mind the bad English! You live in a beautiful part of the country!

I prefer outdoors exercise to gym anyday. It very meditative.

Cute fuzzy caterpillar.

Ah, the joys and wonderment that can be found by taking a detour and not raveling in the usual rut.

Beautiful pics! :0)
