One Hundred Thirteen

June 20, 2014

Mood: Tired
Soundtrack: Passenger "All the Little Lights" / Lupe Fiasco "Lasers"

Everything was perfect. The weather was gorgeous, the temps were completely perfect, it's the kind of night I'd order up to go running. The only problem was that I was working with only four hours of sleep and my legs were dead from Thursday's run. I wanted to go on a long run, but my body was telling me "No!".

I was arguing with myself the entire run. I kept trying to talk myself into going further, but my lungs and legs provided a convincing counter argument to cut it short, which I eventually did. Such a pity, as you can see from the photo, it was a beautiful night. This picture is one of my favorite's one of the few places very near my house where you can get views of the mountains without powerlines in the way. When I see this view, I know I've just about finished up my run, and I just enjoy the beauty. This stretch of road is great to look at in almost any time of year.
