My day went downhill at about 10.15am but before that it was almost close to divine.
We started a new routine this morning, Paul got up with me at 6am and lit the fire as its now cold at night, cold enough that I have ice on my windscreen when I get in the car, very thin ice may I add but ice all the same.
We then had a coffee from the maker that’s now set each night to brew at 6am – part of efficiency Nova Scotia (ok just efficiency us) and then he took Alpine out for a walk, that meant that I could take Duke for a run as soon as he got back and that’s just what we did.
We left in darkness and it was chilly! I was starting to doubt if a fleece and a bodywarmer was going to cut it but it did. By the time I turned the corner onto Oakmount the sun was rising and reflecting in all the windows of the houses there, it was gorgeous. When I ran towards Ryan I could see the golden and red trees and the sun was brighter.
It was quiet, it was just me and the dog and Tom Petty playing on my i-pod, some mist and the rising sun. I felt at one with my neighbourhood, I felt fantastic.
The sky grew a lighter shade of blue and the sunrise lit up a couple of those barely there clouds so they turned pink and glowed in the blue. Such an expanse of sky here, it was stunning.
So, I got my 2.5k in and got home to the girls up and dressed and contemplating their breakfast options.
A great start to my day
