Sunday Morning Run

Posted on

This morning’s cool crisp air quietly beckoned for a run. Dawn was just starting as I began my stretching routine. Tendons felt like guitar strings as I slowly reached for my toes. “Yup, it’s gonna be another slow run.” Nature was waking up around me as well. Birds flew from tree top to tree top echoing their songs of revelry. A lone rabbit enjoyed a buffet of freshly rain washed clover as a racoon made his way to the front lawn oak tree. Small chirps from a red throat humming bird brought on a smile as I finished loosening up. Pandora played as I tried to find my cadence. Settling my breathing, I noticed two bewildered deer watching as I approached. “Are they just gonna stand there?” Seeing I posed no threat they slowly disappeared in the forrest. Each mile completed was announced by Samsung S Health. Pace and time revealed how well or poor I was doing as I fought to maintain a preset minimum pace. “Maintain a 10 minute mile.” I repeated to myself; fighting to stay motivated. Living in a subdivision of dead end roads made for a quiet and relax full run. Not only haveI have found a new Sunday routine worth keeping, but I believe I have taken another step towards living life and finding the happiness I am pursuing. 🙂

    looks good to me. I did 3 miles, but i run/walk. Started out at a 13 minute mile, ended with a 15. No matter the time- it’s just good to get out and move!!
