Sunshine can make so much look and feel so much better. Yesterday was a snowy, cold, dark day. Today the sun is shining, the temperature is rising, and I hear thuds of snow and ice melting and falling off the roof. What better day for a long run? I headed out as the sun was warming the late morning and ran 8 miles – averaging 20 seconds a mile faster than last week when I was dragging so badly. Now, all is relative since I think today was a warmer day to run at a balmy 38 degrees fahrenheit. Come April or May I will have a bit of a different perspective. But today I loved it.
Some workouts inspire me to write more than today. Some workouts and days just simply inspire me. Today is a good day. A day to take in the sunshine, feel great about my run, and spend time with people dear to me. A sunny Sunday in February, it seems like years since it’s been here… and I say it’s all right.
