I woke up with the sun rising this morning. I love waking up to a beautiful view 🙂 and I remembered to take a picture too.
I went on my 7 mile run about 30 minutes after this picture was taken.
I used out my new Garmin 205 Forerunner watch on my run today. Love It! I loved being to track my time mile for mile, it made me really push myself. I can not believe that today is the last day of summer. Summer flew by but I am ready for Fall, its my Favorite time of the year.
It was about 60 degrees for my run, which is cold enough for me to pull out my capris. I finally got out of my slump that I have been struggling with this week and had a Great Run! I really got into my runners high and felt like I could run forever. This feeling is one of the main reasons why I run. I almost feel euphoric, light as air, and just so alive!
After my run I decided to celebrate the last day of Summer with a Tasty Tropical Smoothie.
I will leave you with a few of my favorite quotes that motivate me and remind me of why I love to run. Happy Thursday!
“Running is a road to self-awereness and reliance-you can push yourself to extremes and learn the harsh reality of your physical and mental limitations or coast quietly down a solitary path watching the earth spin beneath your feet.” -Doris Brown Heritage
“Remember, the feeling you get from a good run is far better than the feeling you get from sitting around wishing you were running.” – Sarah Condor
