I began my training schedule
for my next half marathon today!

Dear hubs suggested we drive to the nearby
American River bike trail.
This afforded us a change of scenery
and a chance to see a bunch of wildlife
and witness how high the river is
after the last rain storm!

As I snapped this shot of the sunrise (with the iPhone)
a doe ran into the shot...
Can you see her???

SO amazing...
