This is the view from my parents home, looking down the lane. It's a 1/4 mile from here to the corner. The entire length is right at 1/2 mile. Yes, it's uphill both ways, and yes it sucked when we had to walk to/from the bus in the rain or in the winter : -) Fortunately that didn't happen too often
I wanted to capture a shot of what it's like running between fields of corn. At this stage, it's roughly 10-12 feet high. I think it's cool, those not used to it feel claustrophobic... like Jody! : -)
Still in the lane, here is the other hill to get to the end, so you can see, it really is uphill both ways! I took this shot from the end of the lane. Off in the distance is where I'm heading the top of the next hill
Getting closer to the top. Plenty of cars on this early morning run, many whizzed by at high speed and within arms reach of me. Kinda how it is in the rural areas, I'm used to it though. You just gotta be on your mindfulness game
This is a shot I took of our neighbors home and the cow chillin' out in the pasture. I felt this kind of summarized the pace of life back home.
Finally, at the top. This is a view looking back towards the hilltop that I just came from
And finally making my way back home. The driveway is about 3/4 of the way up the hill
It was an amazing run and I cherished every moment of the journey.
Thanks for joining me!
