Two Hundred Twenty

January 16, 2015
4.02 Miles in 40:40
Mood: Pink
Soundtrack: The Mediocre Show

I'm a proponent of listening to your body. Today my body was screeching at me, "STOP RUNNING!"

I wanted to get in a good normal run because the conditions were perfect, and it was my normal running day, but my legs were dead tired and aching. I got about 2 miles in, and realized that I had to cut it short. I was a bit disappointed in myself, but I started heading home feeling a little bummed that I didn't have a long run in me today.

Then the sky erupted into a bevy of pink, purple and blue and immersed the world in a rosy glow. Sunrise this morning was transcendent and it put me in a much better mood. There will be other days to run, and even if today was a weak exercise day, that sunrise was good for my soul.
