Aug. 30, 2018 - The sun was lit

Getting out this morning as a struggle. Before bed I was excited to go for my morning run. The next morning when I woke up, not so much. Making coffee and relaxing sounded so much better.

But I have a training schedule to keep. It says I run today and there's no reason why I can't, so I run.

I am so glad I did. As soon as left my house and started making my way down to Sakai-gawa the sun peak between the houses. As it was rising it was coming through some clouds and it looked like a bright red disk.

I hurried towards the river to get a better angle for a photo, but I couldn't do it justice.

You really are rewarded for getting up early and getting out the door.

As for the run - it went well. I kept trying to slow down to my target pace, and I don't think I was successful until the final kilometer going up a hill. Overall it was a smooth 7km after getting into the groove.
