When I was a kid

When I was a kid

On Saturday, I felt ambitious and did a session of Bikram Yoga and went for a 6.5 mile run. I waited about an hour in between, to assure (what I thought) was a proper Recovery.

We traversed through old aspens with long moss hanging from the sides. Then we passed by a loud waterfall. Next, after we crossed the tree line, we walked across a boulder field. From […]
