Running Wild

I enjoy my runs in April as I prepare for the 5th 3rd River Bank run coming up in May. Every time I hit the Kent Trails at this time of year I see something new popping up. The Kent Trails between M-6 and 84th street are fertile with wildflowers. From the Trilliums to the Trout lily, from the Bloodroot to the Mayapple, I get a good swift kick in the “plants” on my training runs. My favorite “Ka-Bloom” has and I think always will be the Hellebores I find in bloom along the trail.
