So as promised, today I am bringing you a little recap of my trail running at Stony Creek.
I am ashamed to admit that I have lived in the Detroit area for about 10 years and this past weekend was my first time at Stony. I have two excuses to present as my defense. 1) I am not one to drive to go running when I have a perfectly good running route right out my front door. Unless it is for a race, of course. 2) I am a bit of a scaredy cat and I feared getting lost on the trails.
This past weekend, I said no more excuses and finally did it! I discovered that Stony is well worth the half hour drive there and the half hour drive back. So worth it! I also discovered that the trails are very well marked which slightly decreases my chance of getting lost (I am notoriously bad at directions in any and every situation) and that if I run with my phone I feel even more secure, if in fact I ever do get lost. (For the record, I didn’t get lost either day that I ran there! Go me!)
So what makes Stony worth the drive and worth me potentially getting lost to never be seen or heard from again? I will let the pictures speak for themselves!
Ahhhh……it is like a little slice of heaven that I plan to go back to again and again and again and again…….
Where do you find your little slice of heaven?
Do you have a place that took you forever to go to but now you are in love with it?
