I’m a Sunrise Runner!
How did I not know this? How have I not discovered until today that I am a Sunrise Runner?
Even at 21 degrees, wearing two pairs of workout pants, a turtleneck, a hoodie, a fleece jacket, a scarf and a pair of gloves–I love it!
Oh, and the Christmas Oratorio by Saint-Saëns? Perfect traveling music! By the time I hit my fourth round of jogging and my high spirits had long since faded, in came No. 6 “Wherefore do the heathen claaaaa-mor?” Oh yeah!
And today, after my seventh round of jogging (I did six rounds on Saturday), as I was walking back to make my last attempt at the hill, a bald eagle (who I had heard call earlier and thought was a mere falcon) suddenly flew out of the trees and swooped and called as it flew in front of a ghostly moon. It felt like victory.
It WAS victory.
TODAY’S EXERCISE: 3.8 miles (1.18 miles jogging)
