That about says it all...

Yesterday I had a photo shoot and took some shots of this adorable little girl.   This morning I went out to run four miles and I was thinking of all the amazing words I might put with one of my favorites to explain how running makes me feel.  Joy, freedom of childhood, beauty...my mind kind of got lost in thought (which was a good thing because it was crazy-hot-and-humid! Shew!)  When I got home and went to add all my eloquent words, this came out instead...no more words necessary. 


 Hope everyone is off to a good start to the week!  Is it hot there?  This was the first really hot and humid morning and I felt it!

  1. Love the picture! I may or may not have done that running once... ;) It's warming up here, but more like a muggy humid feeling. Still nothing compared to your weather.

    1. Thanks Lauren! OMG, it does! That's the song that came on during a huge hill at the end of my 10K that made me cry! :)

  4. Yes, hot and humid here!!! Actually wanted to run inside! I'm loving the track now. The one at the HS is much better than the one at the gym, but just couldn't go out in this. And believe it or not, the track at the highschool is actually a 'nature' sort of feeling in my town. Deer do graze at one end . . . and the random squirrel and rabbit hop along side of me on the other side of the fence. So I get the best of both worlds---the soft, forgiving track for my knees, and the entertainment of the outdoors for my mind. Not to mention, I LOVE zoning out by concentrating on all the individuals that come there and run up and down the stadium steps and other remarkable feats of strength. . . I ran for nearly 2 miles the other day, watching this one young girl in AMAZEMENT throwing one of those HUGE tires up and down the football field. Made me 'almost' want to try it myself---but thought I better stick to the strength training for a couple more months before I attempt that one!!!

    1. We have a small (.10 around) indoor track at our gym that I CAN use, but the last time Dallas & I ran it, my calves hurt for DAYS. I think I'm not used to that "give" feeling in the track, almost like it's too soft. I know I'll need to use it this winter, as well, so I'm trying to avoid it until I absolutely have to.

    1. Well...it doesn't ALWAYS feel like that, that's for sure! LOL! I wish it felt like that all the time, but I grasp onto that feeling and try to use it to get through the not-so-magical runs!
