I’ve been getting motivated lately to begin my usual winter exercise routines in anticipation of some adventures this spring/summer. After work today I went for a trail run. The rising full moon in the east was a pleasant surprise. There has been a lot of cloud cover and rain so the lunar orb hasn’t been seen much. I brought a headlamp but didn’t need it much unless I was shrouded in trees. The cool breeze, 50F, was nice. Running up the trail I gained a little over 400 feet of elevation. Returning back to my car I took a creek bed that is currently dry but it’s been getting well used with the recent rains. The sand in the creek bed has the consistency of wet beach, just slightly firmer under foot. Speaking of under foot, I was listening to the Rich Roll podcast yesterday. He was interviewing Guru Singh. Singh mentioned that you should get barefooted and walk or stand on earth for 3 minutes a day to simply get grounded to the vibrations and magnetic frequency of the planet. So, taking the guru’s advice I whipped my shoes and socks off and walked about 100 yards in the moist cool sand. The connection was complete.
It’s January now, the days are getting longer and my trail runs will become more frequent. I can’t wait for summer.
