The last stop on this run is past the back side of the baseball fields. Similar to stop #3, this is a small pocket of nature that is relatively calmer than the rest of the run. I like to end my run here because it feels like a very calming place to relax my body and soul as I begin to cool down. There is a very pretty little wooden bridge here where a small creek runs, birds chirp, and animals live relatively undisturbed. I really love this area because it is one of the few places that I can go to escape from my stress and feel truly calm and at peace with everything. With this, the running trail comes to an end. I hope that learning about why each of these stops is so important to me and how they can be connected to the previous inhabitants of the land can help you appreciate the run in your own way. Be sure to cool down, do some stretching, and maybe I will see you some time as we both go on this run together.
