6:50 AM...

Dear Blog Friends,

The most miraculous thing occurred today at 6:50 AM. I lay in bed wide awake longing, yearning to go for a run. Yearning for a run at 6:50AM, this non morning person certainly needs some sort of mental check up. But alas, the urge was so strong and persistent that I crawled out of the warm sanctuary of my covers, laced on some running shoes and hit the trail. This is the trail I ran crossing Congress bridge, it wasn't quite this green, but it was still stunning. A true reminder of why I love Austin so much, why I love running so much, and why in my college days I preferred early morning classes to evening classes. The day smells so fresh and new in the morning. Although I only ran a few miles I certainly feel like I've climbed Mt. Everest already today.

Hey, I know that view! Love that trail, although I only walk or bike it. Running & me = mortal enemies.
