Mt. Vernon Trail Take Two

We decided to take advantage of the gorgeous day and go explore the Mount Vernon Trail again today (where I took my long run last night). Here I am at the entrance, which is just a 2 minute walk from my front door!

As I’m sure can imagine, the trail was packed.

It always makes me happy to see so many active people around! There were tons of walkers, bikers, roller bladers, and runners out enjoying the day.

We brought our softball gloves and a softball and threw the ball around for about 30 minutes. It was our first time this year and it was so fun, though I’m definitely a little out of practice. 😉 The field right off the trail where we were throwing the ball around was pretty close to the airport, so there were planes landing that seemed right above our heads!

The scenery wasn’t too bad, either 😉

For snacks, I had a 100 calorie pack of cocoa roasted almonds.

Love these! And then I had 1/2 of this bar

I wasn’t crazy about this flavor, but it did the trick. After we finished throwing the ball and admiring the scenery, we were getting kind of hot so decided to come home. We ended up walking a little over 3 miles in total and it was a fun way to enjoy the gorgeous day.
