Scenes from Summer Runs (in Montana!)

on July 26, 2016

Today’s Tuesdays on the Run topic is “scenes from summer runs” and my usual summer run scenery is pretty boring:

If things get really wild and crazy, I may go to the park:


Not the most exciting, right? Still, it gets it done and I’m glad I have safe spaces to run near the house. Sidewalks aren’t sexy but I’m safe from traffic and have built in hill workouts.

Today’s run (yep, I ran today!) was a little more scenic:

Gorgeous right? I don’t run alone on the trails here in Big Sky because of the risk of bears, but even running on the roads around the resort can be lovely. Yesterday, I went on a hike with a couple of colleagues, which was gorgeous!

Big Sky hikeDuring this afternoon’s break in the meeting, I’m going to try kayaking for the first time in that little pond / lake you can see in the photo above. Wish me luck! Scenery like this makes it a lot easier to be out and active than my usual suburbs.

While I’m loving all of this gorgeous scenery, I’m looking forward to getting back home to my normal “boring” runs in the suburbs later this week. At school yesterday, Oliver drew a “transporter” (complete with energy rays and buttons and a Mom label) to bring him up here to me. I like that kid a lot.

Thanks as always to Patty, Erika and Marcia for hosting our Tuesdays on the Run link up. I’m looking forward to seeing everyone’s pics!
