One thing forbidden until it heals (roughly 2 weeks) is direct sunlight. Given that it's May and I really don't want to run in pants, early morning runs are a must. Last night, I couldn't sleep at all and was wide awake at 2:30am. At 3am, I called it quits and got up. Laundry, dishes, morning devotions, and even my morning espresso with a slice of my wife's yummy homemade pizza. Perfect at 3:30am, right?! I headed on out under 48F and clear skies. It was a super peaceful morning with the dew and fog resting over the fields. Here's a photo around mile 5 of my run.
Around mile 8.5, I heard a loud blowing sound, like air filling a balloon. Sure enough! I turned around on my most common route and in the distance was a colorful balloon lifting off just as the sun crested the horizon. Beautiful sight for me and them! What a grand way to start the day.
10 miles done and 28 total since Thursday. Happy with that and ready for the rest of the weekend. Day 2 of our neighborhood garage sale all day then date night!
Have a great weekend, everyone!
