(continued from Art of Relaxation: Retreating) 12/17/09
I woke up refreshed and eager to continue my mission of relaxation. However, I knew I needed to think some things through and start to clear my head. I started the day with a quick mile run, soaked in the hot tub for a few minutes, made coffee, showered, listened to my ipod, cleaned up, packed up my belongings and left the cute cabin.
The sun was shining and it was a bit chilly but did not deter my mission at all. I drove away heading to towards the metro park. I made the mistake of attempting at phone service and saw a few messages and voicemails come through but was unable to effective communicate. Oh well, I would have to return calls when my retreat was complete.
I started to enter the park and decided I would drive until I find a parking lot that had a few good trails.
