This morning I got up bright and early and took off for a morning run. I was going by myself so I opted not to do a trail run {I wasn't in the mood to fight off bears or mountain lions}. So I decided to run the 10K course that I ran a couple months ago. It was pretty brisk this morning; I was glad to have had my sweatshirt!! It turned out to be a FABULOUS run!! It may not have been the race I was signed up to run but it would have been hard to beat this run!

At about mile 2 I was greeted by a doe; she wasn't 40 feet away from me! We just looked at each other; it was a really cool moment! Then after the turn around point I looked up into the sky and saw a hot air balloon! It was so fun to finish off the second half of the race with this postcard perfect image.

I started thinking about why I run and it's moments like this that I love. I get in the zone and just soak in my surroundings. It's an amazing feeling of peace. I was so glad that I got up and ran as if I was running a race, I ended up shaving a good 4 minutes off my last 10K PR. My watch read 56:22; almost exactly double my 5K PR!!

I'm feeling good & lovin life!!

That sounds beautiful. Don't feel bad about wearing the shirt. You still ran the race. Just your own course.
