I love Running!

Once upon a time, there was me. I was lazy and boring. Then, I joined cross-country, the love of my life. The end. I love to run! Really, I LOVE it. Today, after a couple weeks of doing homework (and, maybe a little bit of my laziness was returning) I went on a lovely little run. I didn't go very far but where I went was beautiful still the same. Since I moved and the cross-country season ended, most of the time I go running, it's up in the mountains or along the river. What beauty! I am very blessed to live where I do. But, today, I was able to recognize the beauty in town too. Running through the Tree Streets is quite a treat. Running is always a treat, but through Oak Hills is even more fantastic. Side note: as I was running up around the temple, I stopped just to look for a little bit. I could see me in my neon orange t-shirt reflected in the upper windows. I look forward to the day when I can really be inside (not wearing my orange t-shirt). I am so grateful for the temple and the blessings that it brings to my life.

Ha ha Bronwen I couldn't agree more! I love running in the Tree Streets. And, as killer as it is I also love to start my runs up the Wild Mouse. You should try it sometime. It's easier to do the hills at the beginning than the end plus it's like one good, hardcore push and you're on top of the world.

Also, I love the joy that one little run can give you and how it reminds you of your love of running just when your memory was starting to fog up.
