No Regrets.

I haven’t ran since Thursday.

We were on vacation & I slept in each day.

Trading in my usual alarm clock(s) & starlit skies, I instead welcomed the morning sunshine streaming through my wall of sliding glass doors.

As I looked out the window at this beautiful bay view…I never once wished that I was out there running.

I don’t regret one minute of my 5 day running vacation.

A refreshing break was just what I needed.

Tomorrow’s a new day….
Time to finish our last full week of half marathon training!

~just me…my friends…and our flashlights~ ❤

Reasons I love to run, #2.

I LOVE RUNNING BECAUSE:

The views are spectacular!

Here are a few of my favorite sights from the last 3 years:

On THE track in Talladega! April 4, 2011. I thought this was one of the coolest experiences ever…I just imagine how exciting it must be for car racing fans. It gives me a different perspective every time I see the Talladega Superspeedway on TV.

…and this is my favorite “spectacular view” of all time….

This is my view during most of our runs, my husband, Matt.
He leads…I follow.
Matt tells me a story about an elderly Uncle of his. When Matt was a boy, his Uncle would cut their grass from time to time. His wife would follow behind him, back and forth, mirroring his every step.
Sometimes, I feel like that Aunt. My favorite place to be is right by Matt’s side. But…since I can’t keep up with him YET…this will have to do. 🙂
I love this view.

I’m sure we will have many more spectacular views to share with you in the future!

If you have a spectacular view from a run or a race that you would like to share, feel free to comment with a link to your blog!

I know there are many more beautiful places in this world.
