Celebrate This Week! 10.11.14
It's always good to end the week on a positive note. Sometimes we concentrate on the negatives. We have a choice. Choose positive. Choose to celebrate. I will be joining Ruth Ayres and her weekly link-up, Celebrate This Week. Check out all the other celebrations HERE
It's been awhile since I've posted anything on the Celebrate link up or the Slice of Life link. Life has gotten too busy. But I just got back from a gorgeous run and felt the need to do a quick write on it!
It's a beautiful day for a run in north suburban Chicago! We had our first morning of frost, so it's brisk, but with a cloudless, sunny day, it didn't take long to feel warm! I took a new route this morning. I often run from my house, pounding the streets and sidewalks. But today I went to a local savanna that recently was connected to one of our forest preserve trails (well, technically I went under a rope and around a gate, so it might not have been technically open yet...). What a gorgeous run! Many leaves are changing colors so the view was just beautiful. The tail is crushed limestone so much better for my feet and knees than concrete and asphalt! With the brisk temps, it was a comfortable run and the 8 miles passed quickly. Just a beautiful way to start the morning!
Tomorrow is the Chicago Marathon. Whether it's the temperature or the beautiful Chicago skyline views, I hope all the runners find inspiration and just keep running!
