I have a class at the gym tonight and plans at lunch, but I wanted to squeeze in a run, so 6AM is was. The cool, dark and quiet morning was eerily calming and it was a great way to start my day. I truly wish I had the discipline to do this more often, but the truth is that I’m surprised I managed to get up today. I’m just not a morning person during the week.
So the run was nice and I took a slight detour to scope out some new running/walking trails being constructed in our neighbourhood. We’ve been promised ~9K of trails and I can’t wait to explore more thoroughly as progress continues. With winter looming we probably won’t be able to fully enjoy them until next spring, but it’s definitely something to look forward to.
Not much else to report here. My tummy is grumbling for some breakfast; one thing about running in the morning – it makes me extra hungry all day!
I’ll leave you with a post-run sweaty pic that I took for Prior Fat Girl‘s Proof is in the Pictures:
Don’t mind the nasty cold sore on my bottom lip, which is also the reason I could only half-smile. Ouchie. 😦
Have a good one!
