Morning Motivation

Sometimes, it's difficult to want to get up early on your first day off on a long weekend to go run 19 miles... Fortunately, on a day like today, when I know I get to join great friends for the majority of the miles, and end with brunch at my favorite restaurant, the prospect of running a great distance becomes exciting rather than foreboding. Plus, it is extremely important to get outside and enjoy these last days of light layers of clothing before we are bundled into the rain and darkness of fall and winter.

And it helps when the sky greets you with this:


I hope everyone has a lovely long run today, and a wonderful, safe holiday weekend!

with joy, ~Alaina
