First Run of 2011: 18.39 miles

Went out very late today for my first run of 2011. The day was perfect; I wanted to stay out there forever. I kept thinking why can’t we ever have great weather like this on race day. I always try to take advantage when we have great weather and put in the miles, who knows if we will have another day like today again for a while, although they are calling for another great day Sunday, I never take a chance at waiting till tomorrow because tomorrow sometimes does not happen and I speak from experience.

The run went well and I felt great. I am so blessed to have such a powerful gift and today on my first run of 2011 I used my gift as therapy. I thought about and reflected on 2010, mile by mile the things that held me back last year drifted away and I thought about all the good to look forward to for the New Year. 18.39 miles later the mind was cleared of all the clutter and I am looking forward to 2011 and new beginnings.

Happy running to all
