73 Days to a Brand New Me!

Thursday, August 25, 2011

Yesterday was my planned "rest" day, so I nicely slept in until 7:10. Quite a lovely change from the 5:00 a.m. wake-up the rest of the work week.

Today, the alarm rang again at the dreaded 5:00 a.m. Wanna know what was playing on the radio?

Martina McBride - "Blessed" - right at the chorus:

I have been blessed
And I feel like I’ve found my way
I thank God for all I’ve been given
At the end of every day
I have been blessed
With so much more than I deserve
To be here with the ones
That love me
To love them so much it hurts
I have been blessed

Can you believe that? Such a nice way to start a day - with a reminder of just how much I have to be thankful for, how much God loves me & that I truly do have more than I deserve.

I really, really, really did not want to go for a run this morning, but the minute the cold air hit my knees, I knew I really, really, really did. It wasn't about time, distance or speed today, just me and the road.

Sure, I listened to my ipod - a book by Beverly Lewis - and sure, I clocked both the time & distance. The point is, it didn't matter. I was there to run.

And, I did one of the best runs of the season. Consistent, maybe a bit slow, but 1/2 mile distances between very short walk breaks.

A great way to start the day. I am so blessed.
