What a sunrise! The funny thing is for many years I've been an early to bed and early to rise kind of guy. It comes from having East Coast customers calling at 8 AM. Their time. But while I notice that it goes from dark to light, I rarely look outside to enjoy the sunrise. Well, that's tough to miss the sunrise when the beauty of the morning is laid out right in front of me!
I started out this morning bright and early (well early) with my cup (plural) of coffee. he holidays are one of my favorite times because one of my favorite coffees is available - Trader Joe's Gingerbread coffee. Mmmmmm.
I was out the door at 5:40 and on the trail at 5:50. Before I started though, I had to snap a photo of an absolutely stunning canvas.
The run was an easy 3 miles. Averaged a 9:30 pace at 75% of max heart rate. And I finished up in time to take one more picture as the sun was getting closer to peeking over the horizon.
Tomorrow it's a hill workout. First one in several months. Woo hoo!
