Freedom: A Weekend of Solitude


This past weekend I had 28 miles to clear my head and refocus. I decided I would do some exploring and also prove to myself that I don’t always get lost. Well, I didn’t get lost but I did lose my car key out there. Seriously.

Anyway, it was really the first time I had ever gone trail running alone (Peter’s Canyon doesn’t count) and I absolutely loved it! I think I need these types of runs every now and then.

This quote sums it up quite nicely:

“I have never found a companion that was as companionable as solitude.” –Henry David Thoreau

One response

  1. I do the majority of my runs alone, especially my long runs. There is something to be said about alone time. Time to focus on you and nothing else, I have been criticized for running alone a lot, so I try and do some runs with other people. But at the end of the day you need to do what works for you!
