Waking up to something beautiful …

I have always loved getting my miles in and my workouts done before anyone wakes up. It has been my ME time for as long as I can remember. It’s not always easy, but one of the things that motivates me to get up and out there is knowing what I will see. Trust me, you don’t see a lot at first because IT IS SO DARK! But once dawn begins to break it’s a light show that never fails to take my breath away. This morning when I was out there I thought about how many mornings I’ve had the privilege to experience like this. At this point in my life, they are literally COUNTLESS. It’s funny, a much younger me could have never predicted how grateful I would feel this morning as I looked back across the years. Somehow a normal daily routine turned into something that would bless me far beyond my expectations. And all I kept thinking was, “WOW, what an incredible gift God has given me!”

Well, I hope you all have a day where you wake up to something beautiful!!!


From beginning to end …

I loved how this day started. Early. Quite. My ME time. A time to reflect and pray and plan and sweat. And I loved how this day flowed. Busy. But easy. And I love how this day is ending. Relaxing. Accomplished. This was, indeed, a good day.

Well, I hope you all had a day that you enjoyed from beginning to end!!!
