Sunrise Run and Reflections
Monday, July 23, 2012
I was able to urge my retired buns out of bed early enough this morning to take a sunrise run. I chose a route above my neighborhood at the base of our hills, a bit of an elevation. There are many opportunities to "run some hills" in my area. I don't look forward to hills because I'm not very good at them, but I am challenging myself to tackle them anyway.
The best thing about running up is that I am able to see my town from a different perspective. It is always good to see things from a different point of view.
Wayne Dyer says, "When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change." I tend to agree with him on this point.
This morning my view of the sunrise was spectacular. And my view of my little house down in the flats was comforting and reassuring. It has been our home for 36 years and I sometimes take it for granted. I love my home and our semi-rural, unpretentious neighborhood. There is no status, no ego, no association dues, no competition, and everyone has space.
Here are two pictures of my run this morning. They don't do the sunrise justice; you had to be there.
Wishing all my Spark friends a new perspective at the beginning of a new week.
