Favorite Running Surface

The best part of this 5 mile route is the path along the woods. I stumbled upon it by accident while exploring one day. It's hidden behind a row of houses - their back fences staunchly guarding this refuge. A canopy of tree branches provide shade. But what makes this path wonderful is the dirt. It's just plain old dirt, the kind you wandered on in your youth.
A rolling path marked with scattered pebbles and a few dry twigs. It does not change. I always slow down - just enough, to feel the ground beneath my feet.
