Day 666 – Thankful for Stretching Out My Legs with a Run Before a Long Car Ride & an Epic Hike 3 Years Ago

Whew!  It’s a good thing I’m not superstitious or else I’d freak out over the number in the title.

This morning we were up and at ’em early to get our run in.  While extra sleep would’ve felt great it was more important to get my legs stretched out this morning.  I was working our of our Rice Lake office today which meant that I had a two and a half hour drive on tap this morning (and again on the way home).  My legs were a bit stiff when I got them moving out of bed, but they felt much better than normal on the drive up north.  It also helped a lot to have my heart rate up a bit!

There were many things I was also thankful for today, but my mind kept wandering back to an epic hike we went on as a family three years ago.  On our first full day in Glacier National Park we took the boys on a long hike that took us to the base of a huge glacier.  It was so amazing!!!  The views were mind-blowing, the glacial lake cold and refreshing, and so many things to see out in the wild (including a bear).  Throw in some excellent family time and it’s a hike that I hold close to my heart.
