easy (morning light)

one of my best mates who also knows a thing or two about running always says ' if it was easy, everyone would be doing it'. it's not, so that's why i guess not everyone is doing it. and why i guess it sometimes feels like bloody hard work.

so today as me and the pooch set out for our early morning run we did this particular route clockwise. this way being we climb a mile at both ends of the run (so its the harder way round) rather than descending at the start and finish (easier). the significance is simply that this is the first time this year we've gone that way round. i felt i needed a bigger challenge at 5.45am in the morning right from the start. and it went ok.

as the weeks are progressing so too is the morning light. at 6.20am i was able to switch off my head torch..



...light mornings are coming our way and with them a whole host of optimism...and a feeling of being on top of the world

Hey CD - You don't always have to make things harder
- you do plenty of time on your feet. Main thing is search for that 'high' either whilst you're on the run - you know that oxygen rush - or after the run when you know it's in the bag. Whenever you run try and get high!
