A much needed run today. There are many reason I run. Some have to do with fitness, but that is really not much of why I like to run. For me it is a time of day to take in fresh air. To maximize the potential air flow through my body. It's very cleansing. It also is a wonderful time to unload mental stress or other stresses you may have built up. Being outside can become more of a spiritual outlet if you allow yourself to connect with your surroundings. San Juan Island is a wonderful place to connect to you surroundings. From mountain views and amazing water views. There is an amazing abundance of natural beauty here. So today I used my outdoor venture and run as a release. A way of letting out what troubles the mind and breath in fresh ideas and thoughts.
Today shaped up to be a beautiful day. The sun came out and the temperature was moderate. A very light breeze and views of mountain and calm waters. The forecast for the weekend is not looking so nice. Cold, windy and a chance of snow.
So as you can see today was the day to get out for a run. I am sure I will get out and play if we get some snow. But it will be much colder than today.
Well I have a few pictures to share with everyone. Still shooting with my old digital camera. I am still waiting to hear from Pentax.
I drove to South Beach to take the pictures. It was the closest place for me to park and get a few photos before dark. I just got finished running.
Here you can see the moon coming up. Just minutes before I was running along the tree line coming down the hill.
Lets not forget my partner in crime. Guinness (aka Guinny Pig, Guin, and G-Dog).
It was overall a pretty slow day. Started with a long phone call that ended as about as good as our economy. Then me going on a cleaning rampage in the house, a little guitar playing and the rest of the time was spent running around with Guinness in the woods.
Hope everyone is having a good night.
I will be a the Discovery Sea Kayak shop tomorrow. We are open from noon to 5pm. So if you need any gear it is all on sale. Stop by and say hi.
