Boxing Day Trail Run – Brisbane Ranges

In the spirit of running off Xmas dinner I decided to explore some new trails today.

The Brisbane Ranges National Park, approximately 75km west of Melbourne, was the venue chosen. Hitting the trails just after 07:30, my route took in:

  • Anakie Gorge
  • Lower Stony Creek Reservoir (built in the 1870s)
  • sections of the Burchell Trail
  • the Ted Errey Nature Circuit

Some sections were quite slow going, with the loose rocky surfaces and a number of steep gradients making a potential ankle killing combination.

It was an absolutely gorgeous morning, with plenty of time to take some pics along the way. Some of my faves:

I learnt a long time ago that in order to grow it is necessary to step outside one’s comfort zone. As a person who craves growth and change this has led me to continually seek out opportunities to make myself uncomfortable, whether physically, emotionally or psychologically. The (Dis)Comfort Zone blog is a vehicle for cataloging those experiences.
