Wednesday’s run was wet! The trails were very wet in Maudslay State Park. Running through puddles (ponds) ankle deep did not deter me from stopping and leaving. I realized the trail race I am training for in October can have these conditions. Maybe I am crazy by my realization but my will was strong to get me through the 10 mile trail run. I see Maudslay as my sanctuary which connects me to earth in mediated state. I have done races in snowstorm and 100 degree weather but always finish. Strength comes from the soul connecting to the earth.
