I haven’t been running enough lately, so I had to get out. Plus, it’s supposed to get to a high of FREEZING in Albuquerque for the next couple of days. I decided to take the backroads and stay on trails. At one point in my run, the ball of my foot slid on something soft and squishy, something that felt much like a small animal.
