The sun was just beginning to peek over the horizon as I headed out for my run this morning. I think just about every bird in the state of Indiana must have been awake and singing as their songs were loud and strong. It was beautiful out there - 65 degrees and a little humid, but cool enough that even without a breeze it was really comfortable.
This morning was one of those runs where everything comes together. My legs felt strong and my lungs felt strong and for a brief 30 minutes before the chaos and craziness of life kicked in, everything was right in my world. I had two bunnies pace me for about a quarter of a mile and I watched and smiled as they leaped and bounced across lawns as I moved along the road. There was a couple out for an early morning walk, an older man walking his dog and another runner but otherwise it was just me and the dawn.
I'm the first to admit that I'm not likely to ever become a full convert or subscriber to running the morning. I love my afternoon runs, if nothing else, because I get to spend time with The Munchkin and during the summer I actually like running in the heat of the day. What I would have missed though, if I hadn't gotten up and out the door this morning, was seeing an AMAZING moon as it was starting to set - it was HUGE against the western sky and reflecting the pinks of the rising sun. It was so breathtaking that I stopped for a few moments to watch, give thanks, and be grateful for all that I have.
And as I rounded the corner of the street where I live on my last stretch toward home, Bon Jovi's "Story of My Life" started to play.
This is the story of my life
And I write it everyday
I know it isn't black and white
And it's anything but grey
I know that no I'm not alright, but I feel ok cos
Anything can, everything can happen
That's the story of my life
Make it a great week, friends. As always, I remain thankful for each of you and what you bring to my life.
