This morning I really wanted to go back to sleep when the alarm went off. I laid there for a few seconds and then rolled over and turned on the light. After shaking the groggy fog out of my brain I laced up my shoes and headed out.
I was staying a hotel I hadn’t stayed at in EC before and, as luck would have it, it was just on the edge of town. I headed out on a road that went past Kohl’s down a hill, and then disappeared into the countryside. It was wild, from retail to wilderness.
As I ran I kept admiring the beautiful vistas as the sun was beginning its daily ascent. The air was cool and still and everything was so peaceful.
Had I not gone for my run this morning I never would’ve known that this awesome wilderness oasis was so close to where I work in EC. I’m so thankful for the way running helps me explore so many beautiful news areas.
