Ode to an Early Morning Run

Sometimes the alarm goes off and you debate if this run is really necessary

Sometimes you step outside and you are greeted by a glorious early morning sky and you remember you do like running (for the most part)

Sometimes you look over at the person that is effortlessly passing you and wonder if you’ll ever be even half as fast

Sometimes every step is a battle to move forward

Sometimes you need an extra long walk interval

Sometimes a stop at a water fountain becomes a #selfie photo shoot

Sometimes after a water fountain break you find a burst of energy

Sometimes a field of flowers can bring a smile to your face and lightness to your step

Sometimes all it takes is a High School Musical song on your iPod and you skip the last walk interval and finish strong

And sometimes when you are stretching you realize your shirt was on inside-out the entire time


So later I realized there was no way I was going to publish that water fountain picture.  Or at least to instagram.  But you, my friends, get to see the outtake.  Actual photo a day posted:

  1. I love that water fountain selfie! I don’t think I’m coordinated enough to do that!

      It took a number of shots before I finally got one to actually work! I can only imagine what people were thinking as they saw me trying to take this picture!
