Pre-Dawn Run

What a glorious morning! I can't believe how wonderful it is to run on dry sidewalks and pavement. I have a meeting this morning at 8, so I needed to be out running long before it was light. It really was wonderful. The first mile is straight up hill, which is difficult, but the payoff is getting to the top, just as dawn is breaking on the plains past the Denver skyline - and I get to run one mile downhill, and then another couple up and down.

I really have to get to work. I am grateful to be an alive, sober, healthy, happy woman today.

"Then we can be set free to live and love; we may then be able to twelfth-step ourselves, as well as others, into emotional sobriety." -- As Bill Sees It, p. 288
