Yesterday I enjoyed a perfect long run. I decided to explore some new trails. After searching through a couple of maps I planned a loop of about 25km which would take me over lots of hills on unsealed roads and horse trails. The weather was great, and the scenery on the trail even better. I enjoyed views across the Diamond Valley, Kangaroo Ground and all the way into the city. Kangaroo Ground lived up to its name as I ran around a mob of about 12 roos. I love Australia. Even though a lot of the terrain was challenging, the run felt easy and while I was tired after 2 and 1/4 hours, I felt great. Amazing how a great environment can make a run seem easier.
