run trails at dawn

Running Trails in the Morning. 5.4 mi. 1:06 moving time. Lots of stops for pictures. It was a beautiful morning in La Canada.

Today’s Lesson: Take advantage of the every day.

As I tucked the kids into bed last night, I placed my hand on their head, said a blessing prayer and kissed them good night. It was late already. I’ve been accumulating the data to upload for the tax lady. By the time I walked into their rooms, their lights were off and they were drifting off to sleep already. I reached into the darkness and whispered softly to find their head. Some nights they are already asleep before I get to their bedside. I still holding their head, say prayer and kiss them goodnight. Sometimes, they stir a little and say ‘good night, daddy’, back to me while I’m withdrawing from their room. Sometimes, they keep sleeping. It’s worth it every time. I knew I had to wake up early to get my run in today. So, a little tired and under-slept myself, but it was worth it. The dawn is my reward.

Here’s the Strava details. I wasn’t real fast cuz i kept stopping to take pictures. Strava used to connect instagram pics with the run, but the connect doesn’t sync any more. too bad.
