It's not all gloom and doom, come run with me.

Sunday, December 02, 2012

What a dreary day for a run. Today was one of those days that I just didn't want to do it. I want sunshine and blue skies everytime I go out. Okay fantasy land is not here. I had to choose to look for the pleasant and good along the way to make my run a positive experience not a cranky negative experience. First thing I did was drive to a place that I always have enjoyed no matter what the weather. Then I chose to find the pleasant things along the way.

I saw lots of friendly faces.

I was able to find some color to appreciate on such a gloomy day.

I had some time to reflect and enjoy natures beauty and creation.

I enjoyed the peaceful serenity of my surroundings and realize that it's not all gloom and doom after all. The sun is still above the clouds and it will return another day.

I can really appreciate how Mother Nature decorates her Christmas Tree. I wonder who she gets to put them up so high.

I was so very happy to have a snow pile still left on the ground so I could get the dog poo off of my sneaker. Poo begone! I feel much better now.

Now that was not so bad. How do you think I feel after 5.88 miles?

    What a beautiful run. Love the bison! I want to run with you there.

    Off topic, but one of my favorite moments on my RV travels was when we had a hundred or more bison walk by our RV while in Yellowstone Natl Park.

    Your blog made me want to go back there.

    Great blog ! Your photos are wonderfully fun. It's raining really hard here and I just am hoping that it stops long enough to have a dry walk. Had planned to go out into cattle country myself, but there won't be anything more exotic than that.
    5.88?!?! I love it!!
