New Year~New Trails~New Inspirations

Happy New Year!!! 2013!!!

A cliche day to say the least, but if today is that day you decide to start a new then I am your biggest fan. Wherever you find inspiration; a date on the calendar, an undiscovered trail, your children…I do not judge. I embrace.

Lots to talk about.

Together with a few friends, I am starting a member only trail running club in the Conejo Valley. Our season kick off run will be Sunday, January 13 at Wildwood Park in Thousand Oaks, Ca. Come check us out and see what all the buzz is about. Visit our Facebook page CV Trail Runnners to join and get more details.

My photography passion is slowly turning into a small business…keep an eye out for new pictures posted on this site and my Facebook page~Erica Gratton Photography.

I recently had my race report from North Face Endurance Challenge published at Runners Illustrated. Runners Illustrated is on line publication for all things running; great articles, product reviews and happenings. If you haven’t gotten a chance to read my report, follow the link below. Grab a drink, settle in, read and then stay a while. It’s a great site. http://www.runnersillustrated.com/2012/12/slog-dark-north-face-endurance-challenge-2012/

As one year closes and a new begins, I leave you with this quote from Mary Pipher ~

“Maturity involves being honest and true to oneself, making decisions based on a conscious internal process, assuming responsibility for one’s decisions, having healthy relationships with others and developing one’s own true gifts. It involves thinking about one’s environment and deciding what one will and won’t accept.”

Always be true to yourself…now get out there, hit the trails and discover what it is that makes you you!
