The sun begins to peak over the horizon.
Look at that big old sun!
I intended to run 2 miles this morning, but I felt so good, I just kept on going. I managed to run 3.25 miles. I took a different route than normal, so at about 2.75 miles, I started heading up a big hill. The good part about that was at the top of the hill, I snapped the big sun picture, and then I had a big hill to run DOWN! Just then, on my iPod, "Winning" by Santana came on. So here I am, listening to that great song, running down a hill, with sweat streaming down my face, with a huge smile on my face, thanking God. What a great start to a day!
I had my physical yesterday and my doc said "what ever you are doing, keep on doing it." All my blood work was good and my physical exam was good. I am happy about that. My mother died at 57 - I am approaching 55, it does make a person think.
"Now about health: A body badly burned by alcohol does not often recover overnight nor do twisted thinking and depression vanish in a twinkling. We are convinced that a spriritual mode of living is a most powerful health restorative. We, who have recovered from serious drinking, are miracles of mental health. But we have seen remarkable transformations in our bodies. Hardly one of our crowd now shows any mark of dissipation." -- Alcoholics Anonymous, p. 133
