Thursday evening I went for the most breathtaking run I've ever done. The ARE finished up their Summer Trail Series with a trail run at Thacher Park and a spectacular BBQ! The views were so inspiring and stunning. I couldn't believe that I was so lucky as to participate in three of my favorite things all at one event. Running, nature and eating! (Don't judge me for eating a hot dog and 3 brownies...they were minis!) Thursday was my first time on the trails at Thacher and I can't believe how beautifully maintained they are. It is at times like Thursday that I am very thankful to my body and my family, for supporting my love for athletics! If you have not yet made it to T.P. I highly recommend the trip. You will NOT be disappointed. It is the perfect setting for a romantic date, a family picnic or a friendly adventure. Let the park also be an inspiration to donate every chance you get to save NY parks.
Following are a few photos that do NOT do the experience its full justice.
