Morning run

Virginia60 profile image

Decided to drive to a beautiful local park this morning instead of just pounding the streets to do a couple of laps or so round the lake, forgetting they had a huge firework display last night! The paths were like a mud bath and loads of people clearing up and removing barriers so it wasn’t the best place for a run but I didn’t care! I ran so slowly as I didn’t want to fall, I had my furry companion with me who loved it and I only did about 3K but I was out in the fresh air in this beautiful place and I know I can do a 5K another day and felt just so happy to be alive and that is what running has done for me!! It is more than just the physical it is the mental bonus that comes with it. I am just so pleased I found this group xx
